‘If I could, I would reclaim the word in every language/ value the strength of your words in every language.’
This pop-up pays homage to forgotten words or words that we have over-used. Is there a word you remember using frequently as a child but can’t remember what it meant? Does it annoy you when people add ‘very’ before an adjective instead of using another word? Is there a phrase or a word in your mother tongue that you simply cannot translate into English? Come, share and reclaim your words with the rest of us.
