The Aussies used to call them Stiffies. Probably the most creative vocabulary ever to have emerged from that continent.

Because the English language needs more words.

Not only have I come to enjoy words more in recent years, ironically as I hated English at school, declining ever taking (the separate subject of) English Litl and dropping English language at the earliest opportunity, but I have been surprised to note how often an English word has two or more different, and sometimes even contradictory meanings. I have no idea how someone who learns English as a foreign language gets to be as fluent as some manage.

Yes i agree with you,i am quite amazed when i meet foreign people who have a better grasp of the english language and grammar than myself.The 3 main words i remember in english at school were slipper kane and detention.The pity of it all i enjoy writing on these threads but without a computer i would never join in,because of my spelling grammar and my handwriting are disastrous to an unbelievable degree.The biggest regret for me is what i might have achieved with an education.
