I HAVE BEEN TOLD I DESERVE
“A FULL LIFE THAT ISN’T JUST ABOUT FIGHTING FOR THINGS”

Did you know onomatopoeias (onomatopœiæ) are not real words?

Written representations of noises often contain triple letters, such as brrr, shhh, and zzz, but they don’t really count as proper words.

Not merely upper-class or Oxbridge but actual upper-class Oxford lexicography gone drunk with power. Catch some zees, guys, willyez?

A word is anything that acts like a word (QED).
