comment A word that means how authentic or true a replica is to the original
I'm sorry, but Writers.SE does not accept phrase requests (e.g. "What's a word/phrase that means...").

comment “torrential rainfall promoted unhealthiness …”
@coleopterist: Writers.SE considers them "too localized" as well. We accept requests for critique, but they need to be phrased as critique requests - and that's not something that happens often in EL&U questions.

comment Punctuation of sentence ending with the word “period” for emphasis
Sorry, questions on correct grammar and punctuation aren't on-topic at Writers.SE. I'm closing this; English.SE might want it though.

comment Is 'pin-up' considered to refer specifically to glamorous/sexy images?
Yes! That sounds exactly right! And I can see how I might have misremembered "pullout poster" as "pinup poster"... I think that works really nicely. Sorry to spoil your 1337 reputation :P

comment Is 'pin-up' considered to refer specifically to glamorous/sexy images?
Oh dear. I'd consider "centerfold" to be considered explicitly sexual, referring specifically to the Playboy centerfolds. "Centerfold" is also used to refer to the women themselves, not just to the paper product (whereas a pin-up refers to the poster; the object would be a "pin-up girl"). And nudity is a step more extreme than 50's sex symbols. If "pin-up" is considered more sexual than "centerfold"... oy.

What I'm after is "a cheap, lightweight poster, roughly A3 or A2 in size." (My specific purpose is for a promotional item I think would be nice for Writers.SE.)

comment What is it about English that makes it favourable for writing limericks?
Hebrew is actually quite easy to write uninteresting limericks in. Hebrew words tend to be quite short, syllable-wise; you can also get just about anything to rhyme by converting it into the plural, since they all have the same suffix. What it lacks is those delightful multi-syllabic words where you can get charming rhymes three syllables deep.

Didn't we blacklist the grammar tag? meta.writers.stackexchange.com/questions/321/…

comment If you're using a quote with a period but do not want to end the sentence, do you keep the period?
No worries :) We're noob-friendly. :P

Alas, this is a grammar question, and as such, off topic here. And if I'm already commenting, then YES replacing the period with a comma is correct, and NO the first letter of a quoted sentence should not be lower-cased. Pick up any book or magazine for plenty of examples.

comment When using complete sentences in parenthetical e.g. or i.e. situations, should the first word be capitalized?
Agreed. (I'm not sure of the grammatical correctness of using parentheses outside a sentence. They're kind of like an impromptu footnote... Handy, though!)
