My that which seemed more in line with Lis's that which while not in line with a dictionary's that, is perhaps more reflective of that which we have in this neck of the world,
and seeing as words have a fluid nature that often outpace a dictionary's ability to keep pace, I'll put my that in a hat and proudly wear it pat.

I always thought that if there was any doubt about how a word should be used one should consult a dictionary. My bad.

I always thought that telling someone to consult a dictonary was condescending at best and hardly conducive to a convivial discussion. I thank Zerdini for taking the time to explain
his use of the word in question, instead of going down that bumpy road.
