comment Thrice or triple?
+1 for Second York. Although, maybe just renaming it Gotham would do.

comment “Balconies”, “porches”, “decks”, “terraces”, “verandas”, “lanais”, “galleries”, and “piazzas” in GAE and dialectal AE
So what would you call something similar to a balcony, but on the inside of a smallish space, e.g. a single-floor apartment?

comment One of us is wrong, aren't we?
I feel the same: "Aren't we?" can only come after a "We are X" sentence. "One of us is X" isn't a "We are X". It sounds ok if we say "We have a member whose wrong, don't we?" but that's as far as you can stretch it.

comment “If I were you, I'd apologise to my/your mum”
Hey, I just call it like I read it, if you need to argue to convince me ex-post-facto that it's not confusing, that doesn't really make your case :-(

comment “If I were you, I'd apologise to my/your mum”
It could be "your mum" coming from the speaker as he is now, i.e. the listener's mother, or "your mum" coming from the speaker in when "I were you" holds, i.e. coming from the listener, i.e. the speaker's mother.

Actually, it's not entirely clear, with either option.

comment What is the proper plural form of 'apparatus'?
How does the vowel extension reflect? Also, where can I read about determining which declension a noun is?

comment Which style of Latin plurals should I use?
Well, if people start using the right plurals then eventually nobody will get it wrong because they'll know for certain what the right form is.
