comment Another way to say “when we send you there”
Is the triggering event the clicking of the link or the destination site acknowledging the clicker's "arrival"?

comment Is there another word that means 'togglable'?
Using other online sources including Wiktionary and YourDictionary.com, both "togglable" and "toggleable" are words already in existence.

Not literally. :-p

No...it doesn't mean "I don't need help," that's my point. It's used in that scenario but doesn't actually mean that. Such is our ever-changing language! :-)

comment How to politely say to sellers in stores that you don't need help?
"I'm good" is very natural for younger native speakers, IMO. No one is asking "how are you?", they're asking if you need help finding something. "No, thank you" or "I'm just browsing" are sufficient. Sorry for the rant but this and "No problem" instead of "you're welcome" as a response to "Thank you" are a pet peeve of mine! :-)

comment 'That is' versus 'That was'
Same thing..."Is" is acceptable and true, but really, there's nothing stopping you from using "was", either - because that would be true too.

comment Are there any synonyms for IT IS?
"I'm" has a capital I. ;-)

comment 'That is' versus 'That was'
Even though the event happened in the past, the outcome (the reason why) is still true in the present. That is why you can say "So that is why I couldn't find my homework!"

comment “Pass me by” or “pass by me”?
It depends on what you're trying to convey. They can mean different things. If someone passes you by, it's like they're not choosing you for something. If someone passes by you, it's a literal, physical passing of one person past another.

comment Annual school events
"Pageant" is used for beauty contests now but in the past, schools and churches used "pageant" for a performing program.

comment Annual school events
Sorry if I wasn't clear. The fun fair does not usually include performances by the children. The school "program" would. So you'd say, "I have to go to my child's Spring Program (or Spring Concert) this afternoon". That would be very well understood here in the US.

comment Yikes! Where did it come from?
A cited source should be included in your answer since this is not an opinion forum.

comment Annual school events
In the US, these events are most often called "programs". If it is only singing and band or orchestra music, it's called a "concert". FWIW, a "fair", here in the US is usually not a performance event by school children, but a school-sponsored "fun fair" is a fund-raising event that is like a carnival, usually minus the rides.

comment Is `bonny' neutral register?
I've heard it exclusively in Scottish songs and literature and have heard it used for males and females (bonny lads and lasses).
