[Ads-l] "He shook his head yes."

As he said this, the speaker mimed *nodding* his head yes, of course.

This is no new thing, in my experience. Is "nod" going the way of "farther"
and "-l[ai]ved"?

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
