In any case, I would love it if you'd humor me and take a minute to participate in the poll I've placed underneath the cut. LJ limits you to a certain number of choices for each question, so in some cases, I ran out of space. I didn't have room for "erection," for example.
Feel free to leave notes, clarification, or questions in the comment section of this post. In fact, I'd love it if you did so. And if you're shy, do it anonymously. I promise you this isn't a joke or some bizarre attempt to get off; I'm genuinely interested your thoughts. What are writers, after all, but people who pick and choose words?
ETA: If you know anyone else who'd be willing to participate, please nudge them over here. Doesn't matter if I know them, if they could care less about Bones, or if they'll only participate anonymously. This isn't scientific, but I'm looking for data.
