I'm reading a fantasy novel on Kindle by a popular Amazon author. I'm 3/4 of the way through the book, and it seems the author cannot go two paragraphs without using the word 'mayhap.' I counted the use of the word four times in two sentences. The rest of the dialog is in normal modern colloquial English. 'Mayhap' is the only attempt to use dialect. It's annoying as hell and is probably going to cause me not to buy any more of this authors work - or take up having a few shots of Vodka first.
