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".

I would call that one luck! Every theory has an edge case, and that is certainly an edge case. Nice answer, though!

comment Why did Old Testament scholars choose to employ “to know” in a sexual sense?
@AndrewLazarus: Thank you for mentioning that, it might make things clearer for those who don't speak Hebrew. If you say "אני יודע אותה" there is no confusion: you mean that you have had sexual relations. In the non-sexual sense it would be "אני מכיר אותה".

comment Why is the word “Holy” used before swear words?
Excrement is not holy? Excrement is derived from food, and some cultures pray before consuming food. For those people, those same materials in the excrement were blessed only hours previous.
