Mensagem:  But I think it is exactly the point. Times change and so do languages. What was wrong yesterday may be correct today. Language reflects culture, and culture reflects language. Listen to what people around you are saying, and go with the flow. I'm sure I've heard a woman called a poet but never a host. You are not the Most Holy Defender of the English Language, are you? If you are, I want your autograph.
