There are many people who see the usage of a broader vocabulary as an
enrichment not a poverty of expression.
Funny you use the word "sonny"to a stranger of whom you know nothing ( age ,
occupation etc.) about 20 years or more ago that would have been seen as
very rude, now for a 46 year old I take it as a compliment :-)
Considering the number of words already in the english language (circa
80,000 in regular usage) and the fact that the people who see the usage
of a broader vocabulary as an enrichment not a poverty of expression,
currently are hard pressed to utilize more than 100 of those, I question
the suggestion that inventing new words or especially new ways to misuse
those already in their vocabularies is in any way an enhancement.

caboose interior kit. I'm sorry that I started almost a flame war
because of the P* word just before these days ;-)
I have decided to create the interior all by my self and I have started
looking for even more interior photo's of various kinds of cabooses
(thank you google :-)
I will create the interior from scratch using styrene (for example
evergreen) and other materials. Kits are fun but doing itself is even
I whish you all a merry christmas ( (no trains this year)
For a more train spotting version (last year :
No trouble at all! you might start by researching caboose interiors
here on the net. I know there's some:

So where is it written that one must use "proper English" (whatever the
