comment Trouble with prepositions
Your thought might be improved as "Start date of the period over which the data is being aggregated"; but why not omit over altogether in your first version? "Start date of the period being aggregated" -- that's perfectly understandable.

comment An adjective for the condition of a used brush
If you have quoted from a dictionary or other source, please make sure that the source is seen in the answer (as well as being available in a link, if applicable). Links can disappear and accurate and permanent citation is important. See the other answers here for how they do it.

comment What is the plural of the name Jess?
I think there are too many questions here. Two duplicates have been suggested for some of it; could you edit this post to leave just the bits you need answered, please?

comment Is anyone to speak English sometimes in Telegram?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's not a question about the English language.

comment Is “cemetery gaits” grammatically correct?
Lyrics can say anything. It's a song. It doesn't have to make sense. But for "cemetery gait", think of zombies, perhaps. Where does the lyric come from?

comment Thank you, you too have a great day?
Personally, I favour "I probably won't" or even "Drop dead!" but these tend not to go down well, for some reason.

comment The first is convex, and the second is linear when x>2. is it ambiguity?
@anemone Quite. My point was that the OP's own explanation was unambiguous, and using "for all x" would be a better expression.

comment The first is convex, and the second is linear when x>2. is it ambiguity?
My point was that what you had in your question when you described what you want to say is quite unambiguous. You could omit the "ones", as cobaltduck suggests.

comment Mirror mirror on the wall
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about physics rather than English. Do check whether it's on-topic on Physics Stack Exchange before re-posting there.

comment Abbreviation: single words in plural
And I wouldn't use cc for chapters (rather than cubic centimetres). Use ch: See ch. 5-7.

comment How to determine if a noun is a place or a thing
Why can't "a park" be a place and a thing? Heaven is a bad example, because it's not a place you can just visit, so that's more a philosophical question.

comment when I have to use phrasal verbs
Welcome to ELU. Could you be more specific, please (currently this is too broad, although you haven't actually asked a question), and include your research. Stack Exchange deals in specific questions which describe a real problem that you have.

comment Preposition use
I'm afraid that's not enough. In the tag info for prepositions, it says "When asking questions about prepositions, and especially which preposition to use, the intended meaning must be clear in the question. The correct preposition is the one which delivers the intended meaning, so the question must make clear what the intended meaning is." Also, is (as in the question) is not a preposition.
