A related faux pas: desalinization. No such word, but I bet it will become one so as not to embarrass the media members who like to use it. ;-). --Rob

My other favorite word that gets used by non-geologists: metamorphosized . (Do you Brits use that one, by chance?) I think it fits the rhythym better in some songs and poems.

It certainly got everyone thinking ;-)
If you would like? for the sake of keeping the peace and despite the fact us Brits widely use orientated I will use oriented.
Just to let you know in advance I use some really bizarre words and if it's in the English dictionary (UK version) I will use it!
I won't shun you for your choice of words so please don't shun me :-) we are all different.
Best wishes from across the pond
