It's your language. You use it every day. You should strive to master it. My late mother, a 27-year, graduate-level professor of English, embedded that in my brain once upon a time. I’m not nearly as smart as she was, but I’m sharp enough to recognize that the vast majority of native-born Americans can’t speak or write English worth a lick.

I was watching a piece on the NBC Today Show entitled "How Safe is the Food at Your Local Mall?"
One of the official violation reports cited in the piece used the word "excretia" in reference to mouse shit. Interesting word.
