But, @MonicaCellio, it can add needed clarity as in this duplicate

Here are some words that rhyme with both for when @RegDwightѬſ道 writes that poem.

comment Repetition of hyphen in shared prefixes
I did a search for hyphenation and conjugation before I posted this, nothing relevant came up. If you think you have a better title that still describes my problem, @FumbleFingers, feel free to edit it into one.

comment What is the best way to explain how to choose between “its” and “it's”?
@nohat "I think it is especially confusing because the concept of possession is usually (with non-pronouns) expressed with an apostrophe" Why is it different with non-pronouns? Is that worth a question?

The harvesting terms often refer to the fruits not the plant, and like wise the flowers on the flowering plant. There are several plants that stop growing (in size) but wait 1 or more years before flowering. So I'm not sure if this is what I'm after.

I'm not sure if that's specific enough to what I'm describing. Ivy can be established, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's mature or adult, which seems to imply it's finished growing...

comment “Director at”, “founder of”. What is the correct usage of “at” and “of”?
@Marcin, I've never heard it before. And as native speaker that phrase in that context rubs me up the wrong way, so to speak. Encounter sounds better though, I'll admit.
