"The list which also includes "coz", "aint", "extra" "you woz" and "we woz", was 
implemented by Mr Everitt who took charge of the newly opened academy in September.

As part of the initiative students are also unable to begin sentences with 
"basically" and end sentences with "yeah"."

I get the feeling this might just descend to nagging and coercion. This sounds like a 
job for... linguists! Anyone?
