<br>Hi diotima<br><br>I agree. Language - and writing - for most people is heavily context-driven.<br>I'm going to use different words and sentence structures depending on who I<br>am with and where we are, and for writing, who the audience is and the<br>intended effect. If I'm writing a technical report on the chemical makeup of<br>beer, my tone and word choice will be different than if I was writing an<br>article about a beer tasting for a high-brow magazine. And different again<br>than in an email to a friend when setting up a pub crawl. <br><br>And in the words of the immortal Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the episode<br>where she drinks a witched brew and reverts to a primitive state, sometimes<br>it's enough to say: BEER GOOD! <br><br>Language is fun. ;-))
