His reply addressed what I was talking about, not what you were.
Why are you treating this like a competition? It's not like I hijacked your conversation. I'm the one who initially brought up the point that "Jedi Knight" seemed to be used less in modern SW productions. I'm just wondering a) if that really is the case and b) why, in real life, the change in usage might have happened. Maybe you got the answer to what you were talking about, and that's fine for you, but it would be nice if I could get some responses to my fairly simple questions too.
No it's not just you. I have a feeling it might just be because it's quicker and easier to just say Jedi instead of Jedi Knight. This is coming from nowhere but me, but I'm thinking perhaps Jedi Knight could be seen as more formal. And I don't think they really used the term Jedi Knight much in the OT after ANH. Didn't Luke say he was a Jedi, like his father before him, not a Jedi Knight?
