comment Word meaning “has many similar forms”
Your question seems to be looking for a word that has many meanings, but your example is a meaning that has many ways to say it. Which do you mean?

comment When is it right to use 'to' and 'through'?
It's 'to', but I'm curous as to why you thought it might be 'through'?

comment How to interpret confusing statements involving either/or/not?
@JohnLawler Honestly, it seems to be the exact opposite answer because of the negation in the phrase. OR usually means XOR, but in this case it definitely means inclusive or.

comment How to interpret confusing statements involving either/or/not?
Both. Any of those phrases would imply both. If you wanted to say one of them, you'd have to say something like 'M (and N, who reads the newspaper) are not sitting together'. If you said it out loud, that answer may vary.

comment “…as interesting as you think” vs “…as interesting as you'd think”?
Robusto is exactly right, but it also bears mentioning that the common phrase is definitely "as you'd think"

comment Better names for single component and composite component
Not a very helpful answer, but the composite design pattern uses the term "component" for what you are describing: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Composite_pattern#Structure When it's a component that has sub-components, it's called a "composite". That's definitely not intuitive, though.

comment Arguing the moral point with no evidence but ideas
Let's say you were to use the word evidence. What would the sentence you write look like? I'm not really getting what you want a word like this for.

comment Meaning of “So yeah”
In my personal experience, it's more than "over". It's more like saying "QED" or "I've finished making my point". I've also used it as in "Everything is ready for tonight. So, yeah, I don't think we'll have a problem."
