There are currently 20 posts tagged word. Is this tag useful? Most of the questions seem to be word-choice (a tag I created and am not crazy about -- the idea is right, but I don't like the term) or etymology questions. Any reason not to retag them all to something less generic?

EDIT (Dec '11) - I don't suppose there have been any "word" tags for a long time, but I wouldn't want to see this question closed/deleted. It's a useful template for others that might turn up.

Retag away. [word] is way too general to be useful--questions with that tag should be retagged [word-choice], [etymology], [usage], etc. as appropriate.
