comment Is there an umbrella word for cancer treatment?
@medica I have no idea if it covers nontumorous cancers. That is why I said if limited .... If it covers a wide range of cancers, great, it's a good fit. But I think a better definition of oncotherapy in the answer should reflect that since the linked definition appears to be limited to tumors

comment “My aunt is coming to dinner tomorrow” (grammar of 'to dinner')
@DanBron Do you go to church on Sunday? I may have no idea about your particular place of worship or even if you routinely rotate among several.

In response to @Peter Shor, you could go to church or go to the church. The former is a generic usage meaning heading toward worship, the latter visiting a particular building.

@medica then a link to a broader definition would be preferable. No sure why you think I resent correction. I don't have enough experience being wrong to have developed an attitude about it.

comment “Not as heavy as an elephant.” Which literary device is this?
@oerkelens. it is understatement. Not quite as heavy is minimization of the real weight difference. It is much less heavy.
