>I saw the movie “atonement” over the holidays and the use of the c..t was part of the plot of the story. As the story progressed I was wondering not of the appropriateness but WON it the word was already being used at the time. Yes, indeed the word was an old one, has the beginnings in the 14th century.
Another thing that made me wonder was the use of flashlight, I am so sure that back then they were using torches or lamps and not flashlights with double a batteries I guess.
Consistency is beginning to be a rare commodity. What ever happened to doing first things right the first time, eh..
