    So y'all are saying that the term "modern language" is somewhat of an oxymoron?

    I remember that old Brit tv series called "The Good Life" where Penelope Keith is doing the crossword puzzle next to husband (Paul Eddington) and she asks, "Is hobbledehoy hyphenated?" And he replies..... "In several places, I think."

    It was such a funny line, but come to find out.... it's all one word.....

    I practice my offensive grammar daily. Those who don't repeat the past are doomed to forget it.
    Al, you win the prize on this one...... LMFAO!!!
