comment Difference in usage of “regular”, “usual”, “ordinary”, “normal”, “common”
@mfe: I would not use tap water. In many places tap water is not clean enough to drink, so sill water would be better (as in bottled water than comes from a clean source).

comment Is it acceptable to nest parentheses?
@T.Webster: Yes, that is exactly why you should use it with care as I said in my answer. A good advice would be to look quickly over what you have written, and see if it is easy to spot the matched parenthese pairs (without the aid of a programming IDE...).

comment “Your” vs. “you're”: Why the confusion?
@DanielHanly: I often have to read it twice when "you're" is misspelled as "your" because I the meaning of the two is in my head very different.

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").
