Since we're talking about language-as-use, I thought it was worth mentioning that the use of the word "retard" as a noun to describe a mentally challenged person is generally taken to be offensive these days. See, e.g., the current definition in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary (\ˈrē-ˌtärd\ often offensive: a retarded person). Also, I realize it's Britain and not the U.S. ("two nations divided by a common language"), but according to Wikipedia "A BBC survey in 2003 ranked ‘retard’ as the most offensive disability-related word."
