Letter: Grifters, gongorists — whatever next?

News

I am starting to think that the FT’s editors are gongorists because I am constantly needing to discern the meaning of obscure words present in the US edition of your newspaper. “Autarky” appeared on April 22 (Letters); “resile” and “grifters” on April 27 (Letters and Opinion).

If your editors believe that “gongorism” might appeal to your readers, please confine it to the UK edition!
