Wow - how many words do you want to apply this to? How far back are you wanting to go. The tens of thousands of words that never existed before say 1900? How about the riduculous number of words that culture have modified over the last few decades - many of which mean exactly the opposite of their original meaning.

Or is it just 'woke' that you have trouble with?
If you can't laugh at yourself - ask me and I will do it for you.
