Separate names with a comma.

That, my friend, is a "comma-to-the-top."
This guy gets it.
Not just guitars. Having little else to do, I just searched eBay for "rare" in all categories and got...
2,495,616 results for rare
That's impressively illogical, given that eBay is mainly commodity items.
Backtracking my arse. I scoff at your linguistic rigidity and lame argument whilst continuing my train of thought.
I use words like o'er and nary all the time. But that's not even the point.
You also read them in hymns, poetry and general literature. Which is partly the point, or more precisely constitutes some of the point's substance.
The contraction exists. We know what it means. And that is the point. Furthermore, it offers us the opportunity to avoid extremely confusing terms like "licing again" and "licking again."
In the south it's relic'd
Which is all any of this is.
Thought of another alternate spelling: NoDoNotDoIt!

It has made my list of subjects not to broach on Strat-Talk... right up there with maple or rosewood.
I think tomorrow I shall go out to the shop and derelict something.
However, I did learn a new word 'pedantic'. Thank you @s5tuart.
I like the apostrophe.
or more accurately, jargon
Haha... there are many southern American that may not write o'er, but they certainly say it.
Me: Where is the mower?
My dad: O'er der.
I fixed this sentence for you...

Don't be ridiculous, of course it isn't.
Oh yes Wordsworth used it, no doubt about that. But Wordsworth ain't a ST member. Probably because he died in 1850 & the mods on here have this discriminatory policy of banning dead people. Disgraceful...
The word is not in current usage. Or are you going to start digging up even more archaic words from the 16th Century & then argue:
"That bloke Shakespeare used it a fair bit tho'"
And coffee is now on my keyboard.
Wait... I coffee'd my keyboard. Coffeeed my keyboard? Coffecked my keyboard? Coffeced my keyboard?
You should try working up there mate, it's unbelievable. Even though I was brought up with my grandmother & her sister living with us I didn't have a clue what some of them were talking about.
"I'm gannin' doon to get me bate"
"Excuse me old chap, I'm going to take a break now to eat my lunch".
The problem is that this stuff doesn't get written doon, sorry, down. They might speak like that but they don't write like that so nobody knows whether the word they might use that sounds vaguely like "o'er" is actually that word at all. It very probably isn't but there is no Geordie dictionary or grammar book of which I'm aware so there is no definitive source that anyone can quote.
I maintain that "o'er" is a word that died out when that bloke Wordsworth did & it's stupid to use it in a discussion on an international forum in 2021 & claim that it's current English. It isn't.
