Re(3): plain English?

Not many people use viz., DV, etc. now either.
But it's a losing battle anyway. English will soon be predominantly spoken using text-speak ... LOL, IMHO, YMBJ etc., or Facebook-speak ... Yay !!! Orsum !!!
Plus some of the ghastly current affectations like beginning the answer to every question "So ...."

The days of protesting against "a criteria", or "a phenomena" are long gone too. It only takes one newsreader to get it wrong, then everyone follows suit. Who remembers clostridium difficile becoming "C DiffySeal" overnight ?
