Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

Choosing the correct words

As an author and a public speaker, I’m careful to use accurate words in professional situations. In casual situations, I’m much more prone to language misuse. Here are two recent casual examples:

On the subject of humor: I mentioned, how for me, I’m most successful getting people to laugh when I use self-depreciating humor. (I should have said “self-deprecating humor.”)

On the subject of Donald Trump: I mentioned how each day he gets excrementally worse. (I should have said “incrementally worse.” Hmm. . . . Now that I think about it. Perhaps my original words were correct too.)
