comment Antonym of “deepen”
Oxford Dictionaries Online as well lists it as an intransitive verb. See oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/shallow. Also take a look at the examples.

comment Do animals “live, reside or inhabit” in a place?
I agree. That's because using the simple present sounds weird here. "Wolves live in Alaska" also sounds off to me, but that's perhaps because we know they inhabit other regions of the planet as well. Take a look at the example sentences here: inhabit.

comment Do animals “live, reside or inhabit” in a place?
To be clear, saying "an animal inhabits Alaska" is perfectly fine, isn't it, and you prefer the verb live to inhabit here because of the preposition in?

comment Singular of “dice”
See dice defined here. See also the example sentences. ("Gauss's guess was based on throwing a dice with one side marked ‘prime’ and the others all blank.") It also links to the definition of the singular die. It appears that the OED recognizes both die and dice as singular forms. It might be that with the number one, people still use die, while with the article a, they might use dice.

comment Can I use the word “flesh” when referring to plants/crops?
I agree. Mass sounds more appropriate than flesh for a potato.

comment Why do they address me “Dear (surname)”?
I think the best thing to do is sign off with the name you want to be called and then print your full name below in the signature section. (For example, you sign off with "Regards, Edward/Eddie" and then print "Edward Smith, ABC & Co., Timbuktoo" below this as your signature.
