comment Usage difference between modest vs decent?
@RegDwighт how is the order unnatural? "decent three bedroom house" sounds fine to me.

comment Meaning of “Irish true”
Good point. It's probably a combination of both. Effective advertising will hook different viewers different ways.

@StoneyB Very interesting. I don't know anything about Erse. Do you have a link to further information? Google keeps thinking that I'm misspelling erase.

comment “To be” or just “be”
What if you consider "be" to be the subjunctive form of "to be"? Can't a clause in the subjunctive mood follow the verb "expect"?

comment What is the word for the opposite of “preferred”?
I absolutely love "unsuitable"! I think "atypical" might be too nebulous, in this context, because the preferred patterns for one area can be "atypical" in the sense of very specific.

I'm curious on your opinion on the difference between "patterns of abnormal input" and "abnormal patterns of input". Instinctively I write the latter, but you wrote the former. Am I splitting hairs?
