But if I read Tim's comment correctly, it was the incorporation of such terms (and unattested new ones) into concocted and even offensive dialogues that he objects to, as do I. An honest researching of the terms is fine; it's the cutesy use of them on a scholarly list that is objectionable. (And I wouldn't like to see that sort of (mis)representation on a Popular Speech list either.)
