Re: What I found on origin of usage

August 14, 2015 10:08PM
As you can see from the above that it fell out of this usage until the 20th century but I know that some writers still justify the use of it by simply looking at the original date of usage. They read no further to see that it fell out of favor and wasn't revived until later.

If I had to take a guess, I wouldn't use it as such since I imagine it was out during the Regency era. But, that's my opinion.
