Melioration, by E. Saxey

Lightspeed Magazine, June 2015; 1,475 words
Rating: 2, Not recommended

Narrator has a wicked friend with a device that makes people forget how to say specific words.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The word-forgetting device is a nice concept.

Con: The story really goes nowhere. The effect was supposed to be temporary, except that sometimes it isn't. The whole idea of requiring college students to talk like Victorians isn't credible either.
