comment What is the difference between “in-between” and “between”?
When does one use a hyphen, as in in-between? I've seen this used quite often, but is it incorrect?

comment How can I improve this introduction?
Thanks for the feedback. I'm an interaction designer and this will serve as the introduction of my personal website. The audience I'm interested in is rather tech savvy so nerdspeak is perfect in this case.

comment How can I improve this introduction?
Thanks for the suggestions. I wanted to get some opinions without people knowing what it's about first. I am an interaction designer, and some form of this sentence will serve as the introduction to my personal portfolio website. The audience I'm interested in is rather tech savvy so the "nerdish" aspect shouldn't be a problem.

The first part of your suggestion, although appreciate, doesn't work in this case. However, the "what brings you here" is a great suggestion! Thank you. : )

comment What is a euphemism for enforcer?
When using something along the lines of "payment collection agent" to describe muscle, it's both professional sounding and comedic.

comment What is the word for someone who has been recommended?
Thanks! To give some context to the question: I'm asking about a person who recommends (recommender) a product to another person (recomendee). Spellchecker marks both of these words as incorrect.

comment Readable vs legible
So if a headline is difficult to read because it uses all caps but correct grammar and punctuation then it is said to be illegible? Even if each individual letter is clear, but as a whole it is strenuous for our brain to understand?

comment How can this sentence be written correctly?
"Proofreading ('are there any mistakes?'), unless the source of concern is clearly specified." In my own defense, the source of my concern is indeed specified. I apologize if this question is truly out of place. Reading the FAQ made me feel that I clearly don't belong here as I'm neither a linguist, etymologists, or (serious) English language enthusiasts.

comment “Username”, “user name” or “user-name”
I believe the correct wording for the logging based alternative would be "log into the system".

The title of this stack is English Language & Usage. I asked about the use of commas and semicolons in an English sentence. Where else should I have asked this, if not here?
