I'm a freelance editor and avid reader. I love the English language despite it's maddeningly illogical grammar and syntax.

comment Is there a word for “exactly the most one can handle without being overwhelming”?

comment How to refer to members of the House of Representatives?
This looks like it's more of a word ID question. I'll see if English will take it.
