comment What is an antonym for the term “straight-A student?”
@FumbleFingers, I ended up using dunce. If you'll make it into an answer (perhaps including an analysis of how it does and doesn't fit the requirements), I will accept it.

@Tommy, good analysis. I'm not sure if there is a word that fits the bill perfectly.

@EdwinAshworth: Hmm. Are you referring to between the quotation and the previous word? ("...screamed, 'Help!'?")

comment What types of sounds do cars make?
Good catch! Perhaps another category could be "Abnormal?" (Backfiring, car without a muffler, the squeal of a belt slipping, etc)

comment Capitalizing quotations with initial omission?
That is indeed a legitimate concern. Perhaps the ethical side of this question deserves more thought than I had first anticipated.

comment Capitalizing quotations with initial omission?
Understandable. =) However, I'm really looking for what is "correct," or at least widely accepted, so it would be really nice to have a reference to some sort of authority on the topic. It's very likely that I will accept your answer if such a reference is provided.

Great answer! Could you possibly include some backing for your answer? Major names that use this approach, perhaps?

comment Capitalizing quotations with initial omission?
I apologize for the poor example. You are indeed correct that removing the first four words in my example does remove some of the original richness of the quotation. +1 on your comment. There are, however, many times when I have wanted to nondestructively remove an initial clause in, for instance, a compound sentence, and found myself at a loss as to how to capitalize the remaining quotation.

@Hugo You could have simply added the summary yourself. Contributing is always better than a slap in the face.
