comment Are products of wordsmithing proper english?
I believe what you are referring to as Wordsmithing is actually called morphological derivation. Proper English is much more subjective than you think. Words that fall into common use are, more often than not, considered "proper English".

comment How do you describe the taste of an onion?
+1 I like sharp, but not incendiary because I associate that more with spiciness instead of the bitterness/sour taste of an onion. Ooh and sulfury. I didn't see that the first time.

comment Is the use of “ were” correct in presence of “along”?
I think to correct this particular sentence I would write it as follows: "Vinson, along with Nina Pham, was one of the two nurses at Texas Health..." That aligns the verb to agree with the subject and still distinguishes that there are two people being discussed.
