comment Like 'resize', but for lengths
@AndrewLeach: Can you back that up with link to some appropriate 'autoritative' text mentioning lines being "resized"? I kind of doubt what you're saying. Also, when people refer to the sizes of 3-dimensional objects, it seems to me they usually refer to their projected 2D area or 2D surface area (e.g. "How big is your room?" - would you give an answer in square meters, or cubmic meters?)

None of these have the semantic aspect of going from one opposite, or one direction, to the other opposite.

Because lines don't have sizes. They have no 'bulk', no 'substance' which can have a size.

comment What's a parallel for 'mitigate', for worsening a good situation?
diminish is irrespective of the positive or negative nature of whatever you're diminishing... it's about amount, or degree.

@MattPotts: Well, if I wasn't invited, am I not a crashee rather than an attendee? :-)

+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?
