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.

comment Pronunciation of file format GIF
This is a classic case of pronouncing it toe-may-toe vs. toe-mah-toe.

comment Word for an Original Idea
Except for it being informal, I think this is almost exactly the type of word I'm looking for.

comment Word for an Original Idea
Thanks for your answer. I do think that works, but I don't like how it is an informal definition. I've edited my question to ask for formality.

@MattЭллен Nothing. I just want to know if there is a single word I can use that conveys the same message.
