Sunday Rest: featurette. Word Not To Use Today.

Well, obviously, the person who first perpetrated this hideous assault on the English language should be...

...oh dear...

...I really don't want to be unkind...

...um...

Well, perhaps he or she could be given a nice little job writing for some magazine for semi-literate people with no taste. One of the celebrity ones, perhaps.

Then I doubt that he or she would bother any of us, anyway.

Word Not To Use Today: featurette. Feature (in this case as in article in a magazine or newspaper) comes from the Anglo-French feture, from facere. to make.
