Is use of the term "lineal feet" in the lumber industry ever correct, and if so, how would it be used. I am also curious to know if a specific community or group adopts a word or term as part of their vernacular, but uses it incorrectly, does it become a proper usage. If it does, is that use only acceptable within that community or is it then considered proper use no matter who applies it?
