I learned a new word, today. A retired New York City police detective was on NPR, flogging his book. One of the words in the title was consultancing.

Naturally I was horrificated . It was almost as shocking as hearing Noam Chomsky use the word "analyzation" in an interview on BAI .

If words are allowed to metastasize, how long before we're all grunting and pointing?
