comment What category includes “news”, “articles”, and “stories”
Why not print to distinguish it from visual and auditory measures. While an emerging anacronism, most journalists who write consider their medium print not text.

comment What is the meaning of “have a big row” in friendship?
Note that this word rhymes with cow, not low. It is a homonym but not a homophone to the other meanings of row.

comment What is the generic term for potential evidence whose bearings upon truth or falsehood is not decided yet?
She would call the measurements, descriptions, observations and analyses of the timber data or information. The actual piece of wood is an information vehicle or data source.

comment What do you call the directions orthogonal to uptown/downtown in Manhattan?
@EdwinAshworth That crossed my mind as a fascinating neighborhood name, but introducing Brooklyn add myriads, and the complication that Brooklyn downtown has nothing to do with direction. And then you have to explain that it is a location description not an elephant memorial.

comment What is the opposite of “Boon”?
@NinjaDuckie It is often a negative mark used to determine punishment or negative outcomes (Three demerits and you are suspended!). I am not clear as to exactly what temporary negative effect means.

@tchrist Your misspeaking is probably a function of a Rocky Mountain high.

comment What do you call the directions orthogonal to uptown/downtown in Manhattan?
@tchrist It is further complicated in cities where downtown means the central business district regardless of its compass orientation from the speaker. That is not the case in Manhattan. When you say downtown you mean south (roughly).
