comment Whats the difference between “-ist” and “-er”
@PeterShor If it did, this Q would have been closed. It may still get closed, for other reasons, though.

comment Stative verb in the past
"Until you add some adverbs to your sentences, you can normally forget about time localization" -- You seem to have a relevant point there. Source? (How) does that answer the OP's question (assuming it is corrected as required.)?

comment Stative verb in the past
@tchrist It does and does not, depending on the contextual meaning -- the difference between what the OP seems to mean and what you have read it as.

comment the use of “but your request to verify your inquiry” is gramatically error or is it accepted?

comment Word Sress Within a Sentence: Adjectives
Any advice such as "Place full stress on an adjective ..." is generic and broad, with the caveat that unless the context requires otherwise. An overriding criterion is the semantic/ pragmatic significance within the sentence in the given context. Have a good time!

@EdwinAshworth Synonym is not the same as meaning. Synonyms are not always interchangeable. Please see also: English Language Learners.

Voting to close as off-topic.

comment Is the grammar correct? “… liaise with other departments on processes and for documentation”
In every way we look at it, the question is one of rephrasing. The part of sentence shown is acceptable, the preposition on is fine, and so on. Voting to close as OT/NARQ.

comment Sentence starts with “Of”
By far the easiest way to alter the structure is to start a sentence with a preposition.

comment Is my name English?
It does not relate to the English language. Please see my comment at OP.

comment Is my name English?
"regarding my name and English language:" The OP was asked about the geographical nature of the surname -- English = of England -- not about the language "English." This is a question of genealogy, not language.

comment could be or could have been
Please visit English Language Learners -- Yes, "I could have a been millionaire by now" is correct in the context.

comment What's the meaning of “spray into eyes”
@ErikKowal Any context will tell you that it is literal, when it's not quoting from the lyric.

comment To forcefully do something you're not supposed to do
+1 The Steelers have played sloppily in the last three weeks, and they are not the team that steamrolled through the regular season in '04. oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/steamroll -- Substantiate the suggestion to make it a valid answer.
