comment More Largeness is Larger, More Smallness is Smaller, More “Medium-ness” is?
@Lawrence - I don't think medium necessarily connotes just right in this case. It simply means *in between smaller and larger.

comment What is a person (not a company) who provides a service called?
The fact that "Service Provider" has become shorthand for "Internet Service Provider" (ISP) in the internet context shouldn't take away from the general meaning of the words, despite what many (maybe most) of the internet-centric dictionaries say. If your audience can't determine from your own context that you are not describing something else, you need to provide better context, that's all.

comment How to reply “Would tomorrow at 10:30am work for you?” in a formal way?
"Yes." would be just right. "No." might require at least one alternative suggestion. I'm assuming the email you are responding to is copied below your reply.

comment How can “ A smell leapt out so horrid that it seemed to colour the air ” be correct?
It looks like a poorly written mixed metaphor. Horror and color aren't generally used together, even in figurative expressions.

You need to provide context and/or examples for this sort of request. Allow us to understand why "half-hearted" doesn't work for you.

comment Framing a question whose answer is an ordinal number
@Mari-LouA I have to disagree. The word "which" focuses on the question of ordinality better than "what" does. An answer to the question "what are you" might very reasonably be something like "(I'm not the first, but) I am the brightest!" I am an American speaker.
