Physician educated in Ireland, Britain and America who uses English in medicine, science and business and enjoys English literature and poetry

I approach language in terms of what you want to do with it and how you can achieve that particular purpose, writing a business report obviously has a different approach from writing a novel or reading poetry. You may use language as you wish though it's best that you become of what other people reasonably expect when you communicate with them.
