Not all that common, and only in their weaker moments. It would be odd indeed if every line of every respected poet were perfect in every way.

The group Procul Harum isn't random Latin words after the fashion of Google Translate; they took their name from a pedigree cat called Procul Harun. 'Harun' is the Arabic form of 'Aaron'.

The English word amoebean, occasionally used in literary criticism, carries its meaning directly from Greek ἀμοιβή 'response', and has nothing to do with amoebas.

I hate it when you say that. I feel like it's just a kind way of saying "you're stupid".

If I had thought about the etymology of "demain" before, I would have figured it out earlier, but I simply never had wondered about it.

I know, you've told me many times that you think I'm intelligent. But, for some reason, it still gives me that feeling.

"Over", like between radiospeak, means that the message is over.
 
I was recently told that a prat isn't a pregnant goldfish (which I thought) and the word I was looking for was twat. But then after a little digging I found out that it wasn't a twat either.

Edit: yes I had typed goldfish fish
