Well, gastroentreol...gastropods...stomach doctors use the word "jejeune" because it's part of the stomach or someplace. But then they are not normal human beings. Amos does not, at least yet, have a medical degree. So he really should avoid using what the lawyers call "terms of art." In addition to "jejeune" these include (but are in no way limited to) specialty words such as "semiconductor" "paintbrush" "dryer" "pentode" "detonating cord" "beaten zone" "screw" "camera" "guitar" "food" and "clothes." I'm sure you can think of others. For a while I think he should limit himself to words of three or fewer letters and submit other words he might want to use which contain more than three letter to Little Hawk for approval. Even some three letter words like "cam" or "yaw" should be submitted.
This should not in any way restrict his postings or the ideas he can express.
