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).

comment On the usage of “etcetera”
@XavierVidalHernández: The three dots are often used when quoting a text, and you leave out a part of the original text that are not relevant in your context.

comment When did the term “Jay” come to mean an “unintelligent person”?
Your reference say: "Applied to humans in sense of "impertinent chatterer, flashy dresser" from 1620s." I would say this is not entirely the same as what is asked in the question. I would say it needs other answers for when this was taken further to mean "unintelligent person".
