comment Why “homophobia” and not “sexualism” or similar?
@Mr. Shiny and New 安宇: I actually think your answer is right when you say that "its scope expanded to include all anti-homosexual prejudices", but I believe it would be even more neutral and exact to say that if you discriminate, object to or simply dislike homosexuality (for whatever reason, rational or not) you are labelled homophobic. Not my case at all, by the way.

The suffix phobia in homophobia does not necessarily means phobia or fear (in common language). Etymology isn't everything.

comment Pronunciation of the prefix “tri”
Your answer is what I was looking for. It seems that actually there is a useful rule, and with few exceptions if any. Applying this rule I suppose that if you create a neologism adding “tri” to an existing word, you pronounce it /traɪ/.

Commentary to Saint Paul's Letter to the Ephesians by Saint Jerome (347- 420): "...aut si tantum Latinus es, noli de gratuito munere judicare, et, ut vulgare proverbium est, noli equi dentes inspicere donati".

comment Using 'but' instead of 'and'
@Kris Could it be that, in speech, you could say first: "He is a mathematical genius...", and then follow with "...but also has great musical ability", without being able to add the "not only" that you would not have omitted in writing?
