comment British usage of “cha”, “char” or “chai” to mean “tea”
@nico I don't, I just know. I know it probably isn't good enough for you but you can probably find it out yourself with a thorough internet search. I also assume since I recently went to India for a couple of months and I am fluent in Farsi, and I noticed a lot of Hindi/Punjabi words are borrowed from Persian, and the other way around not so much.

It actually originally comes from Persian, not from 'Indian languages'. A LOT of Punjabi/Hindi words are from Persian

comment Advice on rhetorical usage?
@J.R. It's better to have an unclear title than a wrong one. Also, I don't think it can be made much more clear than it is now, I'll keep it this way for now and if more confusion arises I'll edit it.

No, the edit ruined the question, I don't know why it was done this way.

That might be true for this example, but I meant these types of things in general.

comment What is the meaning of 'catharsis' in a tragedy?
@JonHanna I don't understand what a catharsis is > I don't feel anything when watching tragedies. That's the most stupid non sequitur I've ever seen.
