comment “kinda”, “sorta”, “coulda”, “shoulda”, “lotta”, “oughta”, “betcha”, “tseasy” etc. What are these?
I think “betcha” is more accurately “bet your”, a shortened version of “you bet your [ass]” with the final word completely implied in present-day tongue.

comment Is there an antonym for 'nonplussed'?
The dictionary, for one. Anyone who's a natural-born English speaker and would certainly be confused by the strange imaginary-sounding words you're throwing around, for another.

comment Word meaning “to sort again”
@Kris: Except in speech it isn't the “re” part that's pronounced differently nor is the timing necessarily different; it's the pronunciation of the “s” that makes the difference. The standard accepted English-speaker solution here isn't to write the word “resort” as “rezort”.
