Words I’d Change in the Dictionary
Merriam-Webster's editorial board: Are you listening?
health care: I’ve been uselessly enforcing this one for too long. One word. Let’s get it over with.
record keeping: No way should this be two words. I could handle record-keeping. Even better: recordkeeping. See also child rearing; decision making; etc.
work site: already in the dictionary: workbag, workbasket, workboat, workbook, workbox, workday, workforce
but work camp, work farm. OK, so I see the pattern, but I don’t see that it makes sense.
There are others. Many, many more.
