comment Meaning of “I am cold naked”
@박용현: I feel that many of your questions would be better off in the beta version of this new site: English Language Learners. This is still in private beta, but you can choose to follow it, so you will get notified when it is opened for public beta. When this happens, you can ask questions there in the same way you have done here, but in a site that is more suited for the questions you ask as a learner of english from a non-english perspective.

comment What does “X is not a four-letter word” mean?
@SamB: Using goto in computer programming is considered bad practice (and in modern programming languages well hidden or not possible). So this would by many programmers actually fall into the category of four letter word also in the meaning of being a swear word...

comment Intonation and the changing of meaning
@BillFranke: The question here is not whether this is a good example or not. It's about what the term is called for a phrase where the voice can convey meaning by means other than vocabulary and syntax. We understand what he's asking, so no need to "not agree".

comment Does the washing up fairy exist outside of Australia?
@Paola: Well, yes. That is a well known phenomena, but is related only to laundry, not to washing up. In many cases, it is even not required to be put in the laundry basket, but more like left on the "magic floor" where clothes left at the floor is magically cleaned and put in place.

comment What is the origin of “shh”?
@neil: It is rather curious that this is used to urge someone to be silent, as the 's' and 'sh' sound is heard over most other spoken sounds. So it makes more sound to tell someone to be quiet than the original offence. In choirs, the singers are often told to dampen 's' sounds, and even not sing them at all (just leave it to one or two people).
