Words to keep
"A word is dead / When it is said, / Some say. / I say it just / Begins to live / That day." —Emily Dickinson
English language
The word safari comes, of course, from Africa. Its usual, everyday meaning there is simply "journey". The journey may be long or short, but it probably won't have anything to do with hunting wild animals. According to a report published in March, 2003, many Africans never see wild animals except in books or zoos.
