comment Pronunciation of “lib”
@PeterShor That's an interesting point. If it's true, I wonder why that is. My guess is that it's the difference between a language that's mostly spoken (English) and a language that's mostly written (tech-speak).

I'd call it "too bad" or "too much". Possibly "unfortunate".

That simply describes the shape (and meaning) of the balloon, not the emphasis on the font. Note that it even says the balloons are not italicized.

comment Pronunciation of “Jan. 3”
@J.R. What's the debate about? I believe tchrist is saying that when used in a date, you pronounce it "third", never "three".

I think this should be migrated to Linguistics.SE since it's clearly not localized to English.
