ALL of this. Encourage people to try new words, to mess them up, to experiment with vocabulary, to learn complicated adjectives and verbs and nouns, because words are fun.
Also, don’t be a jerk.
AMEN SISTAH. PREACh
I am still recovering from reading The Subtle Knife. No one I knew ever used the word “subtle” in elementary school!
Specially people who were self-taught and English is not their first language.
I mispronounce things all the time… but I think it’s just cause I’m retarded

In 1878 Eadweard Muybridge photographed a horse named “Occident” in fast motion using a series of 12 stereoscopic cameras. The first experience successfully took place on June 11 at the Palo Alto farm in California. The cameras were arranged along a track parallel to the horse’s, and each of the camera shutters was controlled by a trip wire which was triggered by the horse’s hooves.
