comment Single word for someone who is being impersonated (“impersonatee”?)
Original can work, but I don't think it fits for people.

comment Is there a word for “extreme disgust”?
I'm not sure about answering in this site: "revolting" is obviously a synonym of words from the other answers, but I think implies disgust in a clear way.

comment Word that means “plagiarism” but only in relation to plagiarized ideas
@Mari-LouA - Oh! I completely understand what is the meaning of stealing an idea, of course. I don't understand how you can steal just the idea, and not its effects. I'm not sure we can separate them, so I'm not sure there is an answer to the question. Maybe I am being too philosophical :). Thanks!

@Mari-LouA - I assume you are talking about "take credit"? But to my understanding, you can also take credit for an action, not just for an idea. For example, a shaman might take credit for a rainstorm. Sorry if I'm being difficult, maybe I don't understand something.

I think the word you are looking for is "Plagiarism": "the practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own". I'm not sure I understand - what is the meaning of stealing an idea? You cannot steal an idea out of a person's head - you need to understand it from their actions, speeches, or publications. And you need to use it somehow - just knowing the idea is probably not enough.

comment Derogatory term for electronic device
I like to use Toaster, which usually works well for most electronic devices. Of course, that is not fair to actual toasters.

comment Meaning of “Toffy Circles”
Thanks! I didn't think of "toff". I suspected it has a similar meaning to "tea party" or "book club", so I naturally looked for a noun...

comment What is the meaning of the idiom “Like the Nation”?
I figured that was the case. I'm still reading the book, but I also read a little about the subject. Anyway, thanks again!
