Subject: RE: Don't Renege!
I'm sure most of us find ourseklves using some words that other people would see as unnatural to use. They come to the tongue when the ocasion arises.

I can quite imagine hearing myself using the word "renege", probably more readily than "go back on". As for "renegade", that's a word I use quite often.
