I ran into 'precise' used as verb today. The usage is, "I can precise the installation date and time, but, I can't precise the usage charges further back than 3 months ago." Really, now. I gather that the term is in wide use at Bell Sympatico call centres in Ottawa and Toronto, Canada. Any others? If this keeps up I'll have to start referring to myself as a procedurer or a texter. What illiterati are setting our standards?
