comment Why is 'allopathy' not an accepted synonym for 'mainstream medicine'?
I'd say it could also be because osteopathy is also widely considered to be part of mainstream medicine, but people don't know what that is, either.

comment Word to describe “when someone describes something in too much detail”
@AlexBudovski I took a look over at wordnik and it seems like there can be a slight negative connotation to the word. Here is the first example sentence: "He expatiated on the subject until everyone was bored." There is also an old book called "English Synonyms and Antonyms" that mentions the derogatory connotation of expatiate. Other words with a negative connotation stress the aspect of long-windedness rather than excessive detail, so I'm not sure if there is a better fit.

comment Should I refer to North Koreans and South Koreans “same people” or “the same people”?
One example is when same is used as part of an adjective phrase, like in "The company offers a same day service." Note that the article in this case refers all the way forward to service, and that some people insist on a hyphen when writing same-day.

comment Vulgar way of saying “he killed himself”
I know I'm late to the party here, but the author Tim O'Brien is fond of saying he ate shit to mean someone died. It seems like a close match to me.
