@GMB That may be, but why? Idioms are so much fun!

comment Why is this a fragment?
All of your answers make clear that MS Word is being a little too grammatically precise (I'll bet you never thought you'd hear a math teacher complain about being "too precise", huh?). Shoe's answer also included the "no need to avoid the fragment". I will leave the sentence as is.

comment Why is this a fragment?
@RegDwigнt, I gave you one upvote. But only because the site won't let me give you two (or three). MS Word is a tool (and I would like back the 30 minutes I spent agonizing over whether this would be an embarrassing question to post).

@Soccem I don't quite get your first sentence (but agree with your second).

comment It might be defined different/differently?
@Robin You'll notice someone edited the OP to make it clearer. Maybe that helps.

comment It might be defined different/differently?
@Robin That's a good point, too. And I even whittled the sentence down to avoid as much jargon as possible.

comment It might be defined different/differently?
I suspected "differently", and that's what I always use. I re-read the last response to the linked question and you're right, it does explain it well. I guess it didn't sink in the first time. :(

comment How popular is ‘Contrafibularities’ as a day-to-day English word?
Are you aware that urbandictionary, like The Onion, is not exactly to be used as a reliable source for... well, anything?
