Abstract / Summary
We tend to be dismissive about debates over word-meaning. That's just semantics is a brusque dismissal in educated circles. Yet words matter. The word genocide was coined by a polyglot lawyer named Raphael Lemkin nearly sixty years ago. Lemkin understood that without a memorable word he could never draw the world’s attention to the uncanny crime that was his life's obsession. His ear for linguistics was impeccable.
