Response to Original message
1. "Elements of Style" by *:
1. No words over two syllables.
2. Must sound like a hard sell for cereal.
3. Can't appear more fancy than a speech in front of the Kiwanis.
4. One token word for mispronunciation in order to get the self-depreciating chuckle into the speech.
5. Not necessary that content is beyond comprehension.
