comment Difference between “mastery”, “proficiency” and “familiarity”
Also note that "mastery" might imply more than being very good at something. It might mean an actual title that has certain conditions to be allowed to wear it, such as in martial arts or a "master craftsman" which not just anybody is allowed to call him/herself.

comment Short antonym for 'professional'
@PeterTaylor I don't see Unprofessional as the antonym to professional. Unprofessional is someone who is expected to act professionally, but doesn't. A hobbyist/amateur is someone who doesn't act professionally, but you don't expect him to, either.

comment Is there a difference between “Joe said” and “said Joe”?
I'm not a native speaker, but I can see this inversion being used in normal speech or writing, as a means to emphasize the fact that it was Joe, and not someone else, who said something.
