I write and teach and run long distances and play a mediocre concertina.

comment “at least” vs. “at the least”
I see no significant difference that would lead to a misunderstanding. The "the" acts as an intensifier.

comment What is the hearing equivalent of behold?
Contextually, "hark" is reserved for those awesome moments. If someone were just demanding attention, they'd probably say: "listen".

comment What is the collective noun for a group of scorpions?
It'll undoubtedly be the word you cry when the scorpions are at the gates and you're the one to alert the township.

comment What is the collective noun for a group of scorpions?
Kate Burridge, in her book Blooming English, adds: "There are manuscripts surviving from the 1400s containing long lists of these collective expressions, many of which made it into ordinary language and are still around today". So, by this point we must have an "insert collective noun here" of words for a collection of scorpions.
