comment A word to describe a London projects dweller
Yeah, there are a lot of slightly wealthier people, who do the whole Burberrys and gold chain thing, and get called chav as well. But they're just another side of it, kind of like posh wannabes. Still, if you asked someone what's the UK word for somebody with low income, who often gets in trouble with law enforcement and probably wears sportswear on any occasion, they'd say chav more often than not.

+1 for a given. That should be the top answer.

comment A word to describe a London projects dweller
Most chavs do wear a lot of gold, if they can afford it. If you asked someone in the UK, what are chavs into, then gold jewellery, sportswear, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, drugs, booze and crime would generally be the answer.

comment “White lie” as in The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time?
This is the closest answer. It was a lie by omission, but also a white lie. The lie wasn't intended to deceive, so much as protect the father from undue concern. You can have white lie by omission, you just wouldn't call it that.

comment Is “denigrate” a racist word?
The black is bad, white is good thing is basically pagan. Primitive people saw the days and the seasons as caused by a dualism. The Sun represented light, warmth and new life, the Moon darkness, cold and death. White represents light, and black darkness.

comment Is “I'd've” proper use of the English language?
Would of is total nonsense. People pronounce it that way, but it is always a contraction of would have.

comment Comma splice question
It's not a comma splice, no. The second part is not a valid sentence.

comment Word for a body of water that is sufficiently populated with fish and worthy of fishing in
In the UK, the word angling is very common. Going fishing is just trying to catch some fish, where angling is fishing with style.
