comment Is it possible to regard -id as a suffix forming adjectives in Modern English?
@subic: I am sorry for the ignorance, but what is New English? Everything that is not Old English (Middle English, Early Modern English and Modern English)? Or contemporary English? From Old English: "The Old English period is followed by Middle English (12th to 15th century), Early Modern English (ca. 1480 to 1650) and finally Modern English (after 1650)."

comment Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon: Is there a name for this kind of punny transference?
Background: John Guare's play is from 1990. The concept is older: 1929, "Karinthy has been regarded by some as the originator of the notion of six degrees of separation." and 1961, "Michael Gurevich conducted seminal work in his empirical study of the structure of social networks"
