comment Is “Don't you know? ” the same as “Do not you know?”?
Strictly speaking, the extraction of "Aren't I?" should be "Are not I" to follow the same "rules" as the OP use in the question, but the logic still stands.

comment Meaning of “know life for what it is”
@jwpat7: The question you linked to as a possible duplicate, is now closed as "Not a real question", of which I agree. I'm not sure I agree that this question here sould be closed though, as beyond clarifying the meaning of the phrace, it would be interresting to also get some historic background on how this kind of wording originated. Maybe it would be better to expand the question to include this.

comment When and why should I use 'the'
Not necessarily (even though in this case it is). What I say is that Balford is one specific library (among other libraries), and that it is located in Oxford (just to be sure to get it right in case there are other libraries in the world that is also called "Balford").

comment Is two-thirds plural?
When the meaning of 2/3 is singular as in 1), should it then be said "two third" and not "two thirds" ? My point is that "s" as ending here indicates plural.

comment How to pronounce LINQ?
@SteinG.Strindhaug: The reason they insist on using the # (hash) symbol is that the ♯ (sharp) symbol is not represented on a standard computer keyboard. As for why they chose the name: The name "C sharp" was inspired by musical notation where a sharp indicates that the written note should be made a semitone higher in pitch. This is similar to the language name of C++, where "++" indicates that a variable should be incremented by 1.

comment How to pronounce @somebody for Twitter?
"Tweet Tom" would be the right form, as Twitter has introduced as the way to say it.

comment How to pronounce @somebody for Twitter?
Just a note on the Twitter version: Twitter has introdueced a verb to use for this; "tweet". So your second line there would be "Tweet Tom for more information."
