The power of words

I was reflecting just now on the way that the addition of a single word can sometimes transform a phrase from a hopeless, dispiriting signifier of joyless morbidity into a pean of delight and liberation.

The particular word that triggered this thought was the “former” in the phrase “former Education Secretary Michael Gove”.
