comment You cannot “eat your cake and have it” or “have your cake and eat it”?
@JanusBahsJacquet: I understand it just fine, but the literal sequence of words has two interpretations in the have-eat order, and only one - the intended one - in the eat-have order. So, that's what we should be using. See edit.

comment This contract clause […] that I have this-and-that right
But "says" sounds too colloquial to my ear, and "stipulates" sounds more like what the parties do by means of the contract... anyway, I think I like "provides" best. "The contract provides that I can eat my cake and have it." How's that?

comment Making a concept or a view “more present”
I think you need to have a lot of power/control over people in order to "imprint" their minds...

comment Making a concept or a view “more present”
Can you increase the visibility of something abstract? Which is not even an abstract definition of a phenomenon visible today? :-(

comment Making a concept or a view “more present”
I'd say this suggests making more people subscribe to this view or idea. Or am I getting the nuance wrong?

comment Making a concept or a view “more present”
@Barmar: Hmm. I'm trying to translate an official document from Hebrew describing the stated objectives of an association, which are, among other things, the promotion and the "making-more-present" of certain political views.
