comment What is a word that means unforgettable but with a negative connotation?
+1 just for haunting. Indelible just means permanent.

comment The word “darg ”
I am natively American, and know little further than the absolute answer to the question. I wouldn't mind if someone edited my answer to make the pronunciation analysis more complete or correct. Or you could add your own answer!

@PeterShor Fixed. IPA isn't my strong point yet - I'd like to learn it. Why is the /ɑ/ made long? What would /dɑg/ sound like?

@user3267530 Actually you do have enough rep - try clicking the gray checkmark under the up/down arrows. As far as Mr Hall's strange sight - you probably have read far enough to guess why he couldn't see his assailant properly...

comment Gender-neutral alternative to “craftsmanship”?
My commentary on this answer is a more exhaustive version of my take, but this is a very uncommon usage for craft. COCA and COHA do not sport it at all, and though Google Books has a larger database and I haven't gotten through it, I was still unable to find a usage of her craft in which craft was a synonym of craftsmanship. It's all watercraft, aircraft, craft projects, craftiness (19th c.) and predominantly, occupation.

comment What is the word for a sentence that initially sounds profound or deep, that is, in fact, meaningless or empty?
@MatthewHannigan and ekhumoro: there are two aspects to a platitude: the intended force and the actual content. the triteness and flatness applies to the actual content of the statement, which is in stark contrast to the profundity of its intended force.

comment What is a group of cars on the road called?
Note - my downvotes were deserved, since I also initially suggested an incorrect term (traffic wave). I think it is suitable as it now rests.
