Slow witted people, such as me, tend to object to change. It devalues the hard won currency of experience. Things have a way of continuing to change regardless.
I used to know what enormity meant, and tended to sputter into my Bruichladdic when, in an irony drenched attempt to sound clever, some twunt used enormity as a synonym for enormousness.
I knew this was coming, I have stumbled over the first hint of the word evolving: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/enormity
I am seeking solace in "utilise".
