comment A general word for weapons which are not considered firearms
Since none of the article's sources are from natively English-speaking regions, and I've never seen or heard this term used before, I caution against assuming it is idiomatic English just because it's on Wikipedia.

comment This rule admits/allows no exceptions. Which do you use
@Elian - I'd agree it's probably more common, but that's very different to saying the suggested form is possibly incorrect ... which is factually is not.

It sounds slightly old-fashioned to me, but not odd, and it definitely isn't incorrect.

comment A shorter phrase for “is a poor predictor of”
In that case, it will probably be easier for your audience to parse the standard phrase they're already familiar with, than any substitute you find (even if the replacement is shorter or otherwise better).

is a poor predictor of is a standard phrase in the jargon of science writing. Are you addressing a lay or professional audience?

comment Noun form of primary
The noun is primacy, like I said. It's defined, in each of those three links, as a noun. Is there something I missed?

comment Why use “of” in the phrase “delivered of a baby”?
I think you'd have to be exceptionally flexible to deliver your own baby - it's usually done by a midwife or someone, no? I'm sure even a royal would be described as delivering a baby if they'd fielded someone else's progeny.

comment How to rephrase “cream flavoured cream”?
It feels like "creme" is used more as a contraction of crème pâtissière than a straight synonym for cream
