canada - Vocab Rehab - Word of the Day

(E?)(L?) http://www.canada.com/national/nationalpost/news/headlinescan.html
Die "National Post" (Canada) bietet täglich einen "Wortartikel unter der Überschrift "Vocab Rehab" an.
Ich nehme an, dass diese die Abkürzung für "Vocabulary Rehabilitation" sein soll und das Ziel hat den (öffentlichen) "Wortschatz wiederherzustellen".
Auf jeden Fall gibt es auch immer etymologische Hinweise.
Die Suche nach "Vocab Rehab" liefert leider immer nur die Treffer der letzten sieben Tage.
