Lexiphiles (lovers of words you know: i.e., you can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish or I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me etc.)

The following is a list of lexiphiles that Linda sent me last week. Enjoy reading!

was cut off? He's all right now.

In a democracy it's your vote that counts; in
feudalism, it's your Count that votes.

The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine was fully recovered.

He had a photographic memory which was never developed.

Those who get too big for their britches will be exposed in the end.
