Thank God that English (what a misnomer that is - a language that
includes Latin, German, French, Hindi, Chinese etc. etc.) is a fluid,
dynamic and ever changing language. "Cockney' English (ooohhh low
class dialect that old boy!) was widely used across all class lines in the
late 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries and then "fell out of vogue"
until it "reappeared" again in the late 20th century, once again across
class lines. Anything that is viewed by the broad users of English as
wrong or, generally, that falls out of favour disappears, new words come
along get embraced, fall out of favour, reappear with a new spelling ad
nauseum. LOVE IT! LOVE IT!!! Howdy, Haudi, Audi, 'Ow do you do!

Concerning English - I say read and digest everything but "dis"
