I live in the U.S. and this discussion reminds me of an incident way back in Honors English class in High School. Bill was an exchange student from England and the teacher, head of the English department and very old, read that as "senile", kept "correcting" Bill's English. Finally, he'd had enough, he lept out of his chair and said, "Woman! You have bastardized the English language!" and stormed out of the room. I loved it!!!
“We're more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
