    The one that gets me is "sex." As in "He put his sex in her sex, and they had sex." I'm not fond of any of the other words listed being used in sex scenes, and if I find I've used them once I'm done and getting into the serious editing/rewrites on Pinocchio, I'll prolly burninate them. Only defense I've got for using the terms is "medical" terms and settings, and if a POV is just that sheltered or closed off. Would be a neat way to set up an odd character potentially to use Kindergarten Cop's "Boys have a penis; girls have a vagina" gynecologist kid age-progressed to something legal though

    This is a nice article on vernacular in sex scenes "Keeping the Hokey Out of Your Pokey"

    'Prolly.' Probably the ugliest word in the semi-English language.
    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence : Simon & Garfunkel


    Those who enjoy stirring the chamber-pot should be required to lick the spoon.

    Our job as writers is to make readers dream, to infiltrate their minds with our words and create a new reality; a reality not theirs, and not ours, but a new, unique combination of both.

    I was listening to the radio interview the other day and there was a woman who used 'basically' almost every sentence 'Basically we think...', "Basically we're saying...'

    Other people use 'Obviously...' in a similar role, as a kind of verbal tick.

    I don't know where that came from. These words have a place and we're all guilty of using them somewhat superfluously sometimes, but usually what follows is neither basic nor obvious, and it kind of insults the person who asked the question: If it was obvious or I wanted a basic response, why would I be asking it?
    Deactivated due to staff trolling. Bye!

    'LOL 'The semi-English language'. Is that as spoken in semi-detacheds all over the land ?

    I finally got 'A Family Business' recorded and loaded, all 37 mins of it, much longer than any I have done before.

    Words considered slang that you won't find with a dictionary.
    I would follow as in believe in the words of good moral leaders. Rather than the beliefs of oneself.

    I rather like using "prolly" in dialogue, though prolly not as much as "gonna"

    BAE is another one that I hate.
    Sometimes, I wrestle with my demons. Other times, we just snuggle.
