Re: illegal, unlawful etc.
Which is interesting when you think about it. "Illicit" is an adjective meaning "forbidden by law". "Illegal" is an adjective meaning "forbidden by law". Yet we would use the latter in that context but not the former. Theoretically all four choices should be possible yet we all agree that only A, B and C would be used. We tend to use "illicit" only before a noun.
