Save the Words is a website looking out for the underdog words—the less-loved ones that could be dropped from the English language just like that. If you'd like future generations to be able to casually drop mowburnt (adjective; crops spoiled by becoming overheated) or riviation (noun; fishing), then click around on this nifty site and be a word savior. My favorite is ficulnean (adjective: worthless information regarding fig-tree wood). The digital adoption paperwork doesn't look too tough but it's unclear what special powers you're granted once you successfully adopt, say, ficulnean.
