comment English word equivalent of 膩 (sick of something due to overindulgence)
Informally one might say something is "played" as in "played out". I've even heard "(f-word)ed out" but that is not common parlance and you should not use it in normal conversation.

comment What is it called when you “refill” a debit card?
I'm used to the checking account card = debit card model. I recently heard a commercial on the radio for a refillable debit card and was really wondering why I'd want that. They weren't calling it a debit card, it had some brand-specific name they were obviously hoping to make into a popular thing.

comment Is there a word for a woman going away from home to learn etiquette
In other stories I've read, usually involving male progeny of nobles, the word 'foster' was used. Wikipedia says it was for males and females both. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fosterage
