survey - and the word "fortnight"

Of course we use the word 'fortnight'! What an odd question.

I similarly use acres, furlongs and guinees. I absolutely REFUSE to work in
metric weights and distances which remain completely meaningless to me. I
also use the word 'twelvemonth' from time to time, as in "I haven't seen him
in a twelvemonth".

But then again I am old-school English where the word 'modern' refers to
anything from the 20's onward.
