The war of the word

THE WAR OF THE WORD

It’s not really our style to be drawn into a war of word [sic], but it’s a sporting challenge to be called ‘expedient’, albeit only ‘a little bit’ (‘Chatting with Chipperfield’, AJ 11.10.07).
Of course, we might prefer ‘expeditious’ rather than ‘expedient’, but game on! So what
to lob back over the net? Orthogonal! Skogskyrkogarden! 2-1! Perhaps not. Still, to repair
undamaged relations and show due respect, I have arranged for Gateshead Bridge to perform a deferent bow and a knowing wink in honour of the newest engraving on the tectonically challenged box. Well played.
