Yes, but the sloppy use of these terms is unbelievable! And a huge waste
of time too! If the existing terms were not prostituted quite so much,
it might not be quite so necessary to invent new ones to replace them.

And this discussion has only touched on usage in the US. How do people
in other countries use these terms?

I would greatly appreciate a copy of the article referred to, if anyone
has an easy means to send it to me.
