Absolutely love this week's newsletter, Margaret. It reminds me of my village, and all the (nick)names that "meant" something. Either a landmark, or a memory.

And this sentence is beautiful: "The thirty-two words of the title had subtle differences and layers of meaning, all of which had accreted over centuries and generations." What a great use of accreated.

This, as well as your discussion on knowing vs knowledge.
