comment Is “vast majority” something to avoid?
That's a good point. I agree that a majority is greater than 50 percent. I should have said a majority doesn't always mean "50 percent or greater." I was thinking in relation to Congress where a majority might be two-thirds of a constituency which would be "67 percent or greater." Which begs the question, what is a vast supermajority?

comment “Kitchen's wall” vs. “kitchen wall” vs. “the wall of his kitchen”
Why, "one of our neighbors" then? You could name the neighbor and that would remove the ambiguity as well. "Finally, Joe broke his kitchen wall open and got her."

comment What do you call a person who is easily replaced?
In the Queen's English, I think "redundant" is the most fitting word. In the American vernacular, I'd vote for "replaceable".
