comment Is this grammatical construction an imperative for the third person?
It might be imperative contextually, but I don't believe that it is imperative grammatically.

This is a great answer. Clear and concise, with background information about word origin explaining why it sounds the way it does. Thanks!

comment Why is “albeit” pronounced the way it is?
+1 I speak some German, so maybe I can place the blame there for my misuse of the ei-long I sound.

comment What do you call it when a group of neglected people spontaneously forms a cruel society?
I wonder if there are shades of gray with the "disorder" and "unstructured" parts of anarchy. It seems like there can be even a little order or structure, and still exhibit traits characteristic to an anarchy, like confusion, chaos, and (albeit some) much less order than a the previous situation, or the ideal situation.
