"Disputes about words belong rather to grammarians than philosophers, but philosophers ought not to escape censure when they corrupt a language, by using words in a way which the purity of language will not admit" (Thomas Reid, EIP, I, 11).

(I hear Eliot in this: "to purify the language of the tribe.")
