comment Word meaning “difficult to eliminate”?
If you want to be creative, you could call it a "Rasputin bug". Grigori Rasputin is perceived by westerners as having been extraordinarily hard to kill en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grigori_Rasputin

comment Is there a term for reduplication used to disambiguate categorization?
Amusing as it is for this question to be marked "duplicate", I don't think this is a duplicate question.

comment Is “preference” a recently verbed noun?
Speculation: "preference" is more commonly used as a verb in Australian English, because we have preferential voting unlike the UK and the USA, and the allocation of preferences is described as "preferencing".

comment “Housewife” vs. “homemaker”
Voting to re-open. A dictionary can tell you what a housewife means, and what a homemaker mean. Which won't help much, because they mean pretty much the same thing. However, they probably won't indicate what's the difference between the two, or why some people avoid the term "housewife". You'd have to know about how English has changed over time to be able to answer that.

@ErikKowal I'm not sure what you're implying, but I most likely heard whoremonger from the Bible.

comment Does *tourist* have a derogatory connotation of *inexperienced* or any other meanings in the clip of Ice Age3?
I hope this gets re-opened, but people who think they're better than the average tourist think that they're "Travellers, not tourists".
