comment What is a good synonym for “attribute”?
Traits are innate--see how it is that it has no verb form? Attributes are what we attribute (verb) and can be innate or not.

comment Why do we say “was supposed to” for “should have”?
Although that one was overwrought for the purpose, the pertinent part is in agreement with my insightful explanation, and not with...what is it you are trying to say? I will need to work up a new post to have space to explain in hopefully sufficient detail...a little later, as it was supposed earlier today that I would - i.e., I was supposed to - later on take someone out for supper. Please stand by.

comment What's the opposite word for “sin”?
Some hand holding: the word is faultlessly. Seems to be sinful not to take heed and avoid topics prone to hysteria. Thanks for the validation points

comment “Expected of” vs. “expected from”
Yes, rhetoric is, indeed, the only thing that needs rule. Expected of implies a movement of after-the-fact anticipation in the direction from the subject to the object of expectation Expected from implies movement from the object to the subject of expectation. I expect of you will have done as anticipated you should. I expect from you that the payment you promised will arrive in my hand from yours. Expected of operates as an abstract expression; expected from as a concrete expression.

comment Is there any expression that is the opposite of “slippery slope”?
Nor where any others but why so dour that a precise coinage fits better than slippingly talking around a question. I am reminded: Gooogewhack in Googlewhack out. It was such when I arrived and will remain when I go. Thanks for the down votes.
