Alternatives to an outdated word
I propose a new word…
The word ‘practise’ is insufficient, it provides
- No insight into what the activity entails
- No guidelines on how to be successful at it
- Little in the way of mass appeal

- Take up

Not bad, but still not the full picture. From this overview a realisation emerged. There isn’t a word already in existence that can update and improve on the word ‘practise’.
If I wanted a new word, I would have to make it myself.
