comment A word for “able to cause empathy or sympathy”? Sympathizable?
I think the word you are after is reflexive, which according to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary means of, relating to, or capable of reflection (empathy?).

comment Does the root -batic have a source meaning?
The Greek word for walking on air is αεροβατέω; aερο- meaning air, -βατέω (or more correctly πατέω) meaning to walk. How the 'π' became a 'β' is beyond me. As KitΘδς said, maybe Linguistics.SE could shed more light on this.

comment Translation of Soccer term: disarm
Note that the word "tackle" is used in other sports like Aussie Rules and Rugby and, while the aim of the tackle is to "take possession of the ball", it often results in the opponent losing possession of the ball to a penalty or another player.

comment Appropriate use of the term “transversely”
@Johathan Leffler - Actually, I have taken the paragraph out of its context. The sentence prior to this paragraph referred to a random selection of values between -n and n, hence the 'range' of values. Maybe I should have used 'smaller' or 'larger' range, instead.

comment Appropriate use of the term “transversely”
@GEdgar (and others) - I take back what I said about your argument being the contrapositive. It is the inverse which, in fact, is the correct answer. Sorry about that - it's been a long day.... :-(
