comment Pluralization of acronyms ending in 'S'
FWIW the BBC's use of Tardis v. TARDIS appears to alternate at random.

comment Pluralization of acronyms ending in 'S'
I'd note that US reporting, and NASA itself, refers to NASA as NASA, not Nasa, e.g., nasa.gov/press-release/…. This may be a British-English v. American-English thing, though; BBC also uses Nasa.

comment Should “ya” have an apostrophe? “Doin”? Etc
Interesting distinction; I'm not sure about the apostrophe in the first case. The more I think about it the less I know. Ya know?

@ThePopMachine Hm. How about "kind'f" or "kind've" then? That's one aspect I hadn't thought've.

comment Should “ya” have an apostrophe? “Doin”? Etc
Is this codified somewhere I could refer to? I know that's the "rule" for most contractions/etc, I'm just wondering if it's similar for other constructs.

@HotLicks Why for "doing" and not "you"? Trying to nail down if there are any particular rules/norms for apostrophe application.

comment Idiom for “just because you give something a different name, it doesn't change what it is”
I don't care for the examples given. You're making a blanket assumption that what follows is inherently insulting, racist, or disrespectful, and I don't buy it. As pointed out in the possible dupe the responsibility for the perceived issue isn't only on the speaker.
