Vikings lived until they were about 35 for women and maybe as much as 50 for men, living right next to their open latrines or fecal waste.
Many words within the English language, still used, are from these ignorant violent and very unhealthy Viking / ‘Norse’ words.
“Ill” is a viking word…..no surprise there!
Also the other disfluent short, barky;) words like ‘take’.
Let’s replace them.
Let’s give ourselves words that maintain us in health, and nurture ourselves. This is only uncommon to be heard of, within the English language.
Other languages already take this for granted!
There have been many precedents of changing words within a language. There have been occasions before – when a language was to die out – that all the most beautiful words were incorporated into the stronger language.
We as humans are DESIGNED to learn words. It is the very thing that enables us our brain power!!!!
Let’s do ourselves a favor, and give ourselves the most nurturing and health inspiring language to use as our day to day one.
If not…why not? : )
