Wean yourself from the merely modern and ordinary. Return to the days of yore when real men swore of 'swounds
(God's wounds) instead of slightly more modern "Zounds!" (and, even then, only in Britain). Use archaic words to stake your claim on linguistic scenescence, not just verbal maturity. I ween
you will be routinely misunderstood.
