comment Word for judgemental attitude?
Can you provide a sample sentence leaving a blank where the word in question should go? That might be helpful.

comment Proper word for “all type of rooms / accommodations”?
Are all of your examples procured for a limited period of time? Could you use "nights"?

comment What is the difference between ‘popular’ and ‘famous’?
Hi Sonu, welcome to EL&U! What does your dictionary say about each of them? If you read the definitions of both and have a particular question about their differences, you'll have a better chance of not having this question closed.

comment Why do people use the term "free gift'?
And "free" isn't necessarily without ambiguity which is why in my days as a copywriter for a large retail catalog, we were strictly forbidden from using "free" when offering something for no charge, such as buy one/get one. Per our legal department, we had to use clunky language or disclaimers such as "at no extra charge", "complementary", etc.

comment What is the synonym of the word stray?
Where did the phrase "stray observations" come from...a translation site? If so, from what language? As Rob_Ster said, some context would be helpful, such as the source of the phrase.

comment Is there a negative word for an overt display of emotion?
That would not be understood in the US. We would replace it with sugary or sappy (for sap from maple trees, used to make syrup). Saccharin would be another substitute for the same word. FWIW, the first time I became acquainted with the word "treacle" was in the Harry Potter books' reference to treacle tart. :-)

comment Is there a word for “false accuser”?
I don't get the "accusing you falsely" part. You can be genuinely mad at your friend for being mad at you, regardless for the reason. I'd say that it's more irrational than a case of false accusation. Or maybe you're feeling guilty about making him mad at you in which case you'd be guiltily turning the tables on him.

comment Why do personal pronouns always come last after a list of nouns?
If I had said, "I, Debbie and Janet are going skating." when I was a child, my Mom would have added, "...and the donkey goes first". I guess that meant that it was more polite to name everyone else first. :-)

Rising Stars is a good one!

comment What does 'their' refer to here?
That's a good guess but because it really is ambiguous who "they" are, the sentence should be rewritten, removing the ambiguity. I'm guessing that is what an editor would tell this writer.

comment “What we need and what you get”
Personally, I'd say "What we need - what you'll get"

Voting to re-open. This is about having the same experience, not necessarily feeling the same feeling.

comment Nylon bag vs plastic bag
Quite right @NickT, and according to our good friend (kidding!) Wikipedia: Polyethylene (abbreviated PE) or polyethene (IUPAC name polyethene or poly(methylene)) is the most common plastic. The annual global production is around 80 million tonnes. Its primary use is in packaging (plastic bags, plastic films, geomembranes, containers including bottles, etc.).
