comment ''A and B are the same'' vs ''A and B is the same''
So you are saying that "Clark Kent and Superman IS the same person" would be correct? Sounds odd to me. And Google has 109 K hits for "Clark Kent and Superman are the same person", but only 3 (!) for the same with “is”.

comment ''A and B are the same'' vs ''A and B is the same''
"A and B is the same" sounds impossible. Ungrammatical. Are you sure that the dictionary says "Is postman and mailman the same"? Does it not maybe say this: "Is a postman the same as a mailman?"

comment Why is “For Sell” replacing “For Sale” in common usage?
Maybe it is Spanglish, with there now being so many people in the US whose first language is Spanish, and with the WSJ recently reporting that 10% of US job seekers have limited English ability.

comment Where do people pronounce “ank” as /eŋk/ vs. /æŋk/?
I pronounce it that way. I'm from mid-Michigan. Pretty normal around here. By the way, I asked a similar question before: english.stackexchange.com/questions/90681/…
