I am publishing an article (research) and I am wondering whether theses words, albeit far more beautiful than their equivalent using which, can still be employed even though the OED described them as archaic. I use whereof and wherein the most. The rest of the set is used as a logical derivation in general (like consequently etc.). I do not mind being formal. My British reviewer did not comment on their usage.
Being in science, the field of the article does not use a complicated english (it is a branch of biology). So, besides their clarity, it may be a good opportunity to show how good they are; but if these are already too much, can they all be replaced automatically by their counterparts with there- without changing anything to my sentences ?
Yes, this is linked to where- and there- compounds
