"Do you have your keys?"

"Yeah I have them."

That's not what I asked.

Seems to me like someone is more willing to cling to a modern colloquial usage than use what's appropriate for the context.

Modern colloquial usage is what dictates how language evolves, you ****ing twit.

Which is why I'm standing up against it, but at least you recognize that your stance is only driven by arbitrary conformity.

Like is there really a loss of communication when I say This Heat is a good band?

"This Heat is" sounds fine

but if you went to the concert last week you'd say "I just saw them"

Why? I don't know

But "I just saw it" sounds atrocious

That would be what I was referring to when I mentioned using what's appropriate for the context.

Exactly. Ex. Act. Ly. It's context driven and if you can't grasp context then you can't grasp language.

From what I can tell, you're arguing for across the board pluralism. Or is you just communicating all ****ty?

Dear Batlord,

As we enter this new black moon, how will I fare with both my ascending and moon signs in Leo?
