palimpsest - Palimpsest: "a very old document that writing was removed from and the surface written on again. Sometimes the older writing on a palimpsest can still be read." A real word that's getting added only because I didn't recognize it when I ran across it in a review of the new James Bond film at Rotten Tomatoes.

e.g., "A Bond that, for all its grandiose production values, is little more than an anthology of previous Bonds, a palimpsest even, to be fancier about it." | For me, all but the worst of the Bond films are worth a look, palimpsest or not. Chances are excellent that I'll go to a movie theater to see it. Can hardly go wrong with a $4.32 ticket. The opening sequence will probably be worth that in entertainment value.

palladium - A familiar word, used in an unfamiliar , even archaic, way: safeguard. The example is based on the fact that Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for President, believes the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms -- as has been decided recently in two cases that went to the Supreme Court. Hillary Clinton, the Democrat's nominee, has said the Supreme Court decided wrong. Those who favor the decisions fear she will appoint an Associate Justice to an instance of the Supreme Court that will overturn the decisions when next a gun rights case goes before them. Clinton and her supporters say the fears are unfounded, but there are people who don't trust her to be telling the truth.

e.g., "Trump, like all GOP candidates for president, is for strict obedience to the Second Amendment, which has been called the palladium of our liberty. He's allied himself with -- and been endorsed by -- the National Rifle Association."
