comment is it correct to say it is must for everyone to attend the meeting tomorrow
I agree @WS2. I wouldn't use "a must" for a business meeting.

comment is it correct to say it is must for everyone to attend the meeting tomorrow
Usually you say "It is mandatory for everyone to attend the meeting tomorrow." A casual (not very professional) alternative would be to say "Attendance at tomorrow's meeting is a must!"

I liked your answer but thought it could be a little clearer. :-)

comment Does it make sense, when asked whether you're finished eating, to answer “Thank you”?
No laughing @Catija! ;-)

Interesting, of course, but where is the answer to the OP's question?

comment What does Antichronic mean?
Did you look up the word in a dictionary and does it exist? If not, you may consider re-titling your question.

comment Quotation marks and italics in same sentence
That phrase doesn't really make sense to me because a singer sings fortissimo in a piece, not for a piece. If the phrase was "singing solo for a...", might make sense. It's probably best if we could see the original quote intact.

comment meaning of “linger in the shadows”
Barring actual context, it probably means that someone was hiding so as not to be seen.

comment What is the opposite of superficial?
How do you ascribe that word to a person in terms of someone who is the opposite of "superficial'?

comment Does “Fat Fighters” mean that the group fights against fat, or that they are fatty?
What do you mean by "they are fatty"? Like a fatty liver? Or do you mean they are overweight people? FWIW, "fatty" is a derogatory term that is no more acceptable to call another person than "Stretch" for a tall person or "Shrimpy" for a small-statured person.

comment Can the word “Sails” in any meaningful way equate to the number Six?
Where is your cited research to infer or show lack of connection between "sail" and the number six? Please cite your sources.

comment Pittsburgh English - dropping the “to be” before a verb
From where I live in the US (Midwest), and I've been around the block a few times, I've never heard "need dried" or similar version omitting the "to be" - nor have I ever seen "This car needs washed", @JohnLawler. Around here we see "Wash me!" :-)

comment Word/phrase for 'we're all people' - when we aren't
An idiomatic phrase is "We're all God's creatures", but if you don't want to go that route, you can also say, "We're all denizens of Earth" or "We're all citizens of Earth"

comment Is it correct to say,“Please, tell me the picture where you can see…”?
I think what you're trying to say is "show me the picture that begins with the letter "T"." Is that what you're asking?

comment French (and, hey, others too) equivalent of “anglicize”
Except this is an site for English language usage so I wouldn't be inclined to do that - although I think Brian Donovan may be on to something with his answer! :-)

comment French (and, hey, others too) equivalent of “anglicize”
Anglicize means to bring it into English, so are you looking for the word to bring something into French? Wouldn't that word be French?
