comment What do you call this segment of road between the lane and an exit?
@HarrisonPaine: It seems that "Central Island" is the catch-all term for the rotary center, see for instance page 27. In the specific case on page 32, in which the fact that the central island is mounded is significant, it is labeled as "Mounded Central Island".

comment What is the correct plural form of “offspring”?
How do you differentiate between the use of "offspring" in the singular from the plural? Obviously, as with "fish", the far more common use of the word is in the singular, and this is what the Ngram Viewer is showing you.

comment 'Male'/'female' is to 'gender' as 'left-handed'/'right-handed 'is to…?
"Six sided dice" is pretty much the default. You and I know what 3d6 means, but I'm pretty sure that you could mention three dice rolls without anyone questioning how many sides each die has!

See the terminology used in the answers to this question: Positive euphemisms for desert?. Try "positive connotation".

comment Expression for losing something that you never really had
I would call that one luck! Every theory has an edge case, and that is certainly an edge case. Nice answer, though!
