So what do you think are the oldest words in the English language? Would you believe some of them are tens of thousands of years old? Apparently they are according to researchers at Reading University. I don't know about you, but I really like, "guts," and don't want to lose it. It's a great word to use when you're a kid, one the military relies on heavily, and who would sing, "Greasy, Grimy, Gopher Organs?"
