    If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, then doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?

    I would think the talented people that make patterns for us could be designed and that mail carriers could be delivered.

      Very true. The English language is amazing isn't it. We also ride on parkways and park in driveways as the late George Carlin cogently observed.

              That's easy . . . . if it was pronounced like quick then when someone wanted one you'd think they talked like Elmer Fudd and send them to the 'bwick' store!

                  OK, we will call it amazed, even if others words may fit, but that is English

                  When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.
