comment Is there a word for replacing foreign words with English substitutes?
At least Icelandic has a smaller population of speakers. Americans and Brits can't even agree on spelling or vocabulary for the same things!

comment What is the subject of the following sentence?
I don't know much British English, but I've never heard "involve" used to mean "evoke" or "cause," and OED doesn't give that definition either. Furthermore, the original document from the FAO shows that the very next sentence is: "True food allergies may involve several types of immunological responses (Sampson and Burks, 1996)."

comment What is the subject of the following sentence?
Aren't you both debating two separate things? The OP's question and examples are contradictory and thus really, really, confusing. My understanding is that the OP is asking for the subject of the verb, not of the sentence (despite the title). And #2 (as written) is completely wrong. It should say that the subject of the verb is adverse reactions. In terms of the science, it also has to be "adverse reactions" ... Someone please correct me if I'm wrong?
