comment when “same” refers to plural group… IS or ARE?
The excerpt is from an accounting document I had to proofread, and -- except for conjugating the verbs -- I was not allowed to change the wording. :(

Thanks! Just to confirm -- this means "same" is a plural noun in this case?

comment Is it possible to do something both “cleverly” and “unknowingly” at same time?
@GEdgar because to me, "cleverly" has always suggested "actively knowing what you're doing" -- so seeing it used with "unknowingly" strikes me as bizarre, and I wonder if I'm missing something about "cleverly."

comment did “born and bred” originally have different meaning?
so WS2, are you saying that the British meaning of "bred and born in Britain" is akin to "born in Britain to parents who lived in Britain at the time of conception"? Or would 'bred and born' have same meaning as 'born and bred'?

comment Opposite of Envy
+1 terrific answer. I would point out that number 2 contrasts with jealousy, while we are trying to contrast with envy -- and jealousy and envy are slightly different (though whoever wrote #2 might have actually meant to say "contrasted with jealousy or envy")

comment Can the verb “solve” be applied to the noun “challenge”?
+1 Now I dislike Halliburton even more!

comment Opposite of Envy
-1 because "contentedness" does not address how the emotion was inspired by observing another person (whereas "envy" clearly does -- so its opposite must, too)
