comment Why did they spell it “URL’s”?
@Chucky: I don't see the problem: what is unreadable or exceedingly ambiguous about URLs? And what does it have to do with pronunciation? As you say, it is pronounced you-are-ellz.

comment Is there a good term for “a person or people who have made a statement”?
When in doubt, name the specific thing you are referring to. This being the case, it is likely that more people are being tarred with the “single model of atonement” brush of Zao and Mbuntu than is really fair.

comment Does “precipitation” have anything to do with “precipitous”?
Ceps is from Latin caput "head"; pre is from Latin prae, which in this context means something like "forward", so praeceps is something like "head first". Both English words are from praeceps ultimately.
