comment What is the word for an adult who is not mature?
@Mari-LouA There is a difference between being 'childlike' and being 'childish'. The latter usually implies immaturity and shunning of responsibility while the former doesn't. An adult can be childlike in that he or she feels young at heart, is trusting and somewhat naive, or has hobbies that are more enjoyed by the younger crowd. This doesn't necessarily mean the said person is irresponsible or temperamental like the stereotypical teenager.

comment Using any punctuation, how many meanings does this sign have?
Just a small correction. Dead here is actually used as an adverb.

comment “Scheduled to” vs. “scheduled for”
I don't agree that scheduled for is better grammar. The two are just used for different grammatical structures.

comment Please help explain this long sentence
Gules probably has to do with the French term gueule (animal's mouth).

comment Can you buy things “for cheap”?
@Kyudos Yes it is. On the contrary, Barrie's on the cheap sounds quite alien to me, though I would understand it. (I take it you meant Asian). Your suggestion is possible. I am not an expert on Polynesian languages, but neither Japanese nor Chinese have this literal for cheap construction. It really depends on how one translates things. I still consider British import to be the most likely source. But yes defintitely food for thought.
