Again, another triviality, but I have recently spent several hours listening to the cricket commentary on the BBC Test Match Special programme. I have noticed how frequently all the commentators say the batsman has just “scampered” through for a single. Does anyone other than a TMS commentator use the word scamper these days?
"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less."
