Sorry, you will need to speak in English to me as I don't know what you're gibbering witlessly about.

"Woke" is a pretty recently coined adjective, which is something you should get used to, because that's how language works in general.

Goodness, my oh my, I would never have known that.

Which, as we all know, is exactly what I've been saying repeatedly through this thread over and over which is why you're now referring to that litany of instances of me saying I want things to stay the way they were in the past.

Oh and beautifully ironic, too. I kinda feel like you realized this as you were writing it and decided to just move on.

Azaghal wrote: I think it's worth pointing out that Early Modern English as was spoken in, say, Shakespeare's time, was done so with an accent closer to typical US American or Canadian English of today, and then in the 19th century Brits for some reason started talking funny all of a sudden.

On that topic, I think it's worth pointing out that Q is the only letter of the alphabet not to appear in any US's state's name. Isn't that interesting, and more importantly, isn't it interesting that I knew that and said it here?

No, no, no... please do go on telling me how important you are.
