Contemporary linguistic theorists suggest otherwise. Foucault would have a field day discussing this argument. Do not fear, I am fully fluent with our beautiful language; just choose to engage with an extant form daily.
During my PhD I only ever encountered two scholars who chose to identify with historic vernacular - one spoke entirely in the tongue of Chaucer and the other early 20th Century prose. This was Edinburgh, a city steeped in centuries of oral tradition... Times change, as do fashions and with them language use - I suppose this is why we have adjectives such as ‘dickish’ in the OED now!
On another note, uniform or not for my upcoming nuptials?
It's where you did your Doctorate--Perhaps?
Dickish? an adjective? I'm strugging to think what it can actually mean.
One hopes being "dickish" in no way impairs the wearing of your future husband to be Veterans' Badge or his well earned medals..
May you both enyoy a happy marriage--grammar notwithstanding
