The Standard English Dictionary? Is that figurative?

comment How do you write the expression of disgust that sounds like “er”?
American speakers would be rather confused by a spelling with 'R', as the large majority of us are rhotic speakers.

comment Is using “wish” like this exclusive to India?
I don't see why this question has a close vote. I think monotransitive wish is a well known feature of Indian English. It's described in Indian and British English: A Handbook of Usage and Pronunciation (2004, p.197) and Contemporary Indian English: Variation and Change (2009, p.106), for example. It's not a feature of AmE or BrE (for example), and an answer can plainly say so and answer the rest of the OP's questions.

comment What does “well you” after a comma mean?
@FumbleFingers It didn't seem like a riddle to me. The meaning was clear. (It doesn't really matter to me whether you close it or not. It's your site, not mine. But the meaning was apparent, so I left a comment.)

comment What does “well you” after a comma mean?
It doesn't look like non-native English to me. It looks like each well is a filler word. "Your body size doesn't make you you!" It's probably hard to tell because of how the commas were used (or not used).

I think people write addresses the way they see other people write them. I don't think many people ever stop to consider the logic behind it, if any.
