comment How suffixes like -ness and -ship are chosen when forming abstract nouns?
EdwinAshworth and JohnLawler, yes I was amazed too to find this work. I see your points, but wasn't sure of how free it is, previously. (In particular I considered ease of pronunciation, or etymological reasons.) I think your comments are good as answers as well.

comment Single word for (request, response) pair? (casual words ok)
@TrevorD but I do not intend to name any variables. The programming-related usage is (intendedly unambiguous) talking. :)

comment Did English ever have a formal version of “you”?
Ön (more polite, works like 'Sie' in German) and maga (from slightly to quite rude) in Hungarian. (Quite common, standard usage. But there is also a unorganized movement for trying to avoid them, because they are sometimes slightly-to-quite associated with an unwelcome way of being formal, or using that as an excuse to get rid of empathy. It's a bit demanding to avoid them but not impossible. One attempt is to use the equivalent of old thou as the Quakers, an other way is using some kind of proper names, or simply try to avoid addressing alltogether.)

comment Why does the multi-paragraph quotation rule exist?
so quotation marks are not parentheses (nor brackets) after all - at least not in the UK|USA.

@KaiserOctavius thanks! I think I confused that one with the 'unfinished' draft! Then it may be, 'let the draught in'?

comment Is there a word meaning “the other side to compare against”?
how do I know this is not a verb but a noun? it sounds like it could be used as a verb. it would make use to me if the word I use could be seen clearly as a noun. (I would use it in a programming context where an arbitrary name could either mean a function or a data.)
