Katie's proposal sent me into a whimsical train of thought about all the
awful words like prioritize and marginalize and all those other -izes. And
I wondered what prompts us to use the -ize suffix to create these verbs
instead of another suffix that also would work. I wonder how it would
change the rhetoric of a 4C's session if we talked about marginalating
each other....
