comment Soft or more euphemistic way of saying “suffer”
Not sure everyone agrees with your definition of challenging :-) consumeraffairs.com/news/…

comment Soft or more euphemistic way of saying “suffer”
I'm not sure I understand what you want. Anyone who has overcome a challenge knows that there's some mild pain involved. Arthritis can be challenging. Aerobic workouts or hikes can be challenging. Bad traffic can be challenging, etc. No pain, no gain.

I suggest you remove euphemistic from the question title. From merriam-webster.com/dictionary/euphemism : a mild or pleasant word or phrase that is used instead of one that is unpleasant or offensive

comment Word for multi opponent combat?
@tchrist As I mentioned, I started to know the word because I played the game by the same name when I was in my teens. I always pronounced it "MAY-lay", but several people used the mealy homophone. Diacritics or not, where I grew up in West Virginia one wasn't always inclined to use fancy city-folk words.

@Xarcell it's been in my vocabulary since 1979 or so, as I used to play the board game: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melee_(game)

comment What word(s) do children of English native speakers use for “kid”/“child”/etc
@Catija OP states "looking for (a) word(s) that is/are perceived to be child's language by adults." The daycare workers correct the other kids to say that's X (my son's name), not a baby.

comment Taxi Fraud or Taxi Scam?
My intuition is similar. Scam would imply customer, whereas fraud implies the system. I was scammed (short-changed) by a taxi driver in Lausanne Switzerland once in the 5 years I lived there. No place is scam-free when it comes to taxis. It's a job that has a lot of opportunities to be opportunistic!
