The English Language changes, and is changing, and not always for the better. In the old Flintstones cartoons, the theme song would declare “We’ll have a gay old time.” Today, nobody would use the word “gay”
In the modern age, we have modern situations that, frankly, I think we need new words to describe. For example, when you’re driving a safe distance behind somebody, and the person behind you passes only to slip into your safety zone.
..Understanding terminology, and using it properly, is important. I used to tell my students to pay attention in English class, explaining to them that no matter how many letters are behind your name, ain’t nobody gonna take you seriously if you can’t talk no good American.
