Because "argumentation" is a pointlessly long word, and seldom used in
(Commonwealth) English. "Poor reasoning" is far more readily understood.
Quote:> "reasoning" instead of "argumentation"
Now why couldn't you have used that in the first place?
Quote:> "coach" or "guide" instead of "trainer"
No problem with the word. (Well, IMHO many/most "trainers" are
incapable of actually training their clients. (And yes, I _do_ know
trainers, most, if not all, are ex-teachers, and do a very good job.
It's just that the ones that I've had the misfortune to deal with where
they are trying to train me and/or my staff have been useless))

Well, I only really speak/read/write two, English and French, but if you
separate Commonwealth English from American English, then it's three. I
can puzzle out Latin and Spanish and Italian, Basque takes a bit longer,
I'd have to get my ear in again, it's been close to two decades, and the
German is over three decades rusted.
