The USA has had a huge influence worldwide culturally and not always for the better in my humble opinion so it is really nice to hear about your grandmothers memories. I am in Scotland and a lot of words carry a Germanic influence especially Gaelic words even the tone in which central western Scottish natives speak has a slight guttural quality although that could be related to the Vikings and Gaul's. The world is constantly changing and it is only natural language would become less provincial.

My books are arranged by colour and yes I do use them and I can find them. I see no reason why something that's not used daily shouldn't be used in a more decorative way.
