Hey! Another list! This one is much shorter than 50 items, is a bit more philosophical, and the author actually used the word, "effectuate" in the title (good grief). I too have a love for concise words... but did you know that without regard for level of education, the majority of EVERYONE comprehends text best that is written at a sixth grade level. Remember to write with words you like to read, not the ones you like to say.
