comment What word describes someone who offers unsolicited advice?
I don't see why... I listed that definition in my comment. The definition you'd already listed is also good.

comment What word describes someone who offers unsolicited advice?
I like this definition even more: one who looks on and often offers unwanted advice or comment <a kibitzer at a card game>; broadly : one who offers opinions

comment What word describes someone who offers unsolicited advice?
Not really serious, but how about mother-in-law? More seriously, I've never heard anyone say that they were going to offer unsolicited advice. In fact people who are inclined to offer unsolicited advice often do not realize they are doing so.

comment Difference between “slacks”, “pants”, and “trousers”?
@ΜετάEd Since when does the general public care what professionals think? If I need an extra pair of pants for my suit jacket, I'm not going to buy a new suit. I'll get myself some matching slacks. ;-)

comment Difference between “slacks”, “pants”, and “trousers”?
@Brandon I generally wouldn't say slacks as the term is more of an occasional term used by my elders... But if I did I would only mean suit pants in the sense of the kind of pants that may be paired with a suit jacket. For your information, I was raised in a suburb of Chicago.

Isn't it neat how usage varies? Personally, I would call suit pants slacks if worn without the jacket... but I didn't want to modify the quote.

@Robusto Indeed, I overreacted. Informal does not equal casual.

That AE definition for slacks is outrageous. Do a google image search for slacks. Do those look informal?
