comment Analysing “So amazed he cannot speak”
this isn't a full sentence. it's a fragment. it lacks a verb (likely "to be" as in "He was so amazed...").

comment Are the words “soul” and “spirit” synonymous?
Also, "a soul" can be used as a metonym to mean "a person" (as in "there wasn't a soul around"), whereas "spirit" used like that implies a ghost.

comment Is the word “wareful” archaic?
How can your sense of anything have another emotion? Is it animate? "I was wary" sounds much clearer.

comment Apartment number before or after house number and street
That's not true of all post offices. The US Postal Service, for instance, tends to put apartment on line 2.

comment What's the unit for a blueberry?
@Daniel Chinese has measure words for nearly everything (and maybe Japanese and Korean). English has very few measure words. We mostly just use units when something is divided up - slices, pieces, parts - when there's a natural grouping - pairs, sets, decks, packs - or when the original word is not countable - dollars, kilograms, liters.
