  • Just a brief morphological note in the hope of dispelling confusion about the nonce word "disspelling". The "dis-" particle in the word derives from the verb "to dis", which is slang for "to disrespect", which itself is slang for "to show disrepect" or "to treat disrespectfully". It is not a misspelling of "dispelling", which derives from the Latin "dispellere" and means "to drive away", in the sense of making something (usually bad) disappear.

  • For many years influential members of one of the two major political parties in the United States have been refusing to call the other party by its proper name. Right-wing Republicans will not utter the word “Democratic” in any medium with respect to the rival party. They refuse to acknowledge the existence of the adjectival form of “Democrat” and insist on referring to the “Democrat Party” or to “Democrat voters” or to “Democrat proposals.” This is presumably to deny by implication that any “democratic” virtues attach to that party and to insult their opponents by the deliberate malformation of their name. The practice has become so widespread as to cease to draw comment or correction.
