Yes because english is not THAT regulated specially on some time expressions. https://blog.oxforddictionaries.com/2015/08/12/ten-things-you-might-not-have-known-about-the-english-language/
my understanding is that 'coger' should to be used with caution outside of Spain: http://www.spanishdict.com/answers/262020/use-of-coger
No problem with this verb. This verb has 32 meanings. If you are referring to the meaning that coger is used mainly in Argentine ( In Vulgar speech) you can use Tomar in this Country. We,. Spanish Speakers,usually we use this verb with total naturalness.

Yo cojo, tû coges él,ella usted coge, nosotros/as cogemos, vosotros/as cogéis, ellos/ as cogen.
¿Quieres que te coja ( recoja) en la parada de taxis? Do you want that I pick you up at the taxi stand?
An example might help; we would say Yo tomo un taxi todos los días, y cada día tengo un chofer diferente. I take a taxi every day, and each day I get a different driver.
Use cada día when you want to express something special about each day, and todos los días when they're pretty much the same.
Re: Spanish Diphthongs
[Hiatus, Elision, and Diphthongization] (https://www.britannica.com/art/hiatus)
In prosody, hiatus is a break in sound between two vowels that occur together without an intervening consonant, both vowels being clearly enunciated. The two vowels may be either within one word, as in the words Vienna and naive, or the final and initial vowels of two successive words, as in the phrases “see it” and “go in.”
Hiatus is the opposite of elision, the dropping or blurring of the second vowel.
Hiatus is also distinct from diphthongization, in which the vowels blend to form one sound.
In phonology, hiatus (/haɪˈeɪtəs/... or diaeresis (/daɪˈɛrɪsɪs/ or /daɪˈɪərɪsɪs/)... is the result of two vowel sounds occurring in adjacent syllables, with no intervening consonant.
The English words hiatus and diaeresis themselves each contain a hiatus between the first and second syllables.
first and second syllables.
Sad news: SpanishDict has feet of clay.
The Pronunciation columns are a waste of screen real estate. Give me IPA (or phonemes) or give me death!
Spanish Vowel Hiatus
When a strong vowel and a weak vowel appear together and the weak vowel is accented, the vowels belong to two separate syllables. This is called a hiatus. Two strong vowels together also form a hiatus
