comment If you send an email that you already sent, can you say you “resent” it? Same as “resenting” someone?

comment What is the origin of the phrase “There goes the neighborhood” and does it have racial connotations?
Actually, the Federal Housing Administration explicitly used race as a metric of "neighborhood desirability" so the fear of depreciation that @choster mentions was quite real and enforced by federal policy until the Fair Housing Act. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Housing_Administration#Redlining

comment Is the word European the only word that doesn't go after “an?”
What are you asking? "This" also doesn't go after "an". "Purple" also doesn't. Also, "are"...

comment OxFORD and CamBRIDGE
It's hard to tell what you're asking here. If your question is along the lines of your above comment, please put that in the question. If your question is about loconyms and manmade water crossings, ask that. Right now, it may seem obvious to you, but I have no idea exactly what you're asking, and evidenced by your unimpressed reaction to answers, neither do the other participants here.

comment Use of “of” to define objects?
There's no significant difference between "the penguins of Malaysia" and "the United States of America". There's no significant difference between "the Kingdom of Cambodia" and "the police station of Pawtucket".
