Everyone speaks English (or at least, attempts to, in the case of Americans).

Well, as someone from the states I can say while those words are uncommon, I do know the meaning of each one since they arn't terribly rare when it comes to written literature or descriptive art down here. We don't speak them on a daily basis simply because art and daily speaking tend to differ quite a bit. I've never heard anyone say "And I unleashed unbridled rage!" instead of "That dude pissed me off and I went kung-fu on his ass." =P

This reminded me of when Robert freaked out about the Super Steve lyrics "Don't look so skeptic when you turn your eyes to me". He realized later proper usage would have been "Don't look so skeptical when you turn your eyes to me" as "Skeptic" is a reference to a person or thing that is "skeptical". But what I, and a few others tried to put into that was... in the spoken english language, it was entirely acceptable if not completely correct to begin with.

Woah, rambling.. :P

"And I unleashed unbridled rage!"

Though it'd undoubtedly be cool if we'd talk like that all the time...

This is one of the biggest reasons for me to download software instead of buying. I want english!
Swedish translations ALWAYS suck. There's only one good thing about them, they make you laugh.

Should I desist the reading of such works of literature that contain so much bountiful joy?
