Collins to exuviate 24 little-used words

The Collins English Dictionary is 86-ing 24 words from its version of English. Not to be oppugnant, but this decision vilipends our language.

Collins feels the caducity of these words is apodeictic. But this caliginosity can only serve to embrangle future generations — not to vaticinate, but I expect that when they come across these words but have no resource to find what they mean.

As keepers of our language, the Collins English Dictionary must behave with mansuetude when they make such decisions.
