comment What lexical relationship lies between the days of the week?
And @Katherine: the first question is a fair one to ask, but the second one is just weird and nonsensical. It is essentially, "is the relationship car, fingers, astronomy, or yellow?" It's a perplexing mix of terms for which it takes but a lookup of their meaning to immediately see that none of them can possibly apply.

comment What lexical relationship lies between the days of the week?
@AaronK by that definition, there can be no such thing as hyponymy, metonymy, synonymy, or indeed any kind of relationship between any two words at all, because all words are arbitrary signifiers. And you completely lost me in that last sentence. I can only parse it such that Tuesday comes from two and that numbers are related temporally, but you can't seriously be suggesting either, so I'm at a loss.

@BlessedGeek because why? That is not a rule of English grammar.

comment Did the author of the Hunger Games make a mistake here?
I'm not sure if I'm following. The only instance of said in the quote is "I said", which cannot be replaced with "I says" because that's ungrammatical. (Nor with "I say" because going by what little context there is it's an event in the past.)

comment Collective term for data sizes (bytes, kilobytes, megabytes etc.)
Just like you did: "size units" or "capacity units". More generally, "units of digital information". Or "data size" (again, just as you did), or simply "size". Depends on the context, really.

comment Is there a word for one side in a pair?
Of course something can only be a complement to an aforementioned something else. A boot is not a complement. It's only a complement if you already have the other boot. And then you're still missing a name for that original boot you already have.

comment Etymology-Name Meaning
I'd actually like to see a reference for this. That is, other than whattonamemybaby.com and the like. A quick look into dictionaries suggests it has nothing to do with aperire, but was derived from the month, which again has nothing to do with aperire. I'd rather not have us spread folk etymology here.
