comment How do I spell the truncation 'Cas', as in 'Sports Casual/Sports Cas'?
I might write it "Caj" and hope people pronounce it like "Raj". It doens't look right. I'd probably avoid this issue in writing by spelling it out.

comment The meaning of “Trolling around”
@MετάEd The article also points out the the Old Norse word for a mythological monster, where they are often creatures bent on mischief and wickedness. Internet trolls seem to be the at the intersection of the two words, rather than simply being from fishing term.

For the people suggesting "burp", do you possibly mean "urp"?

comment Word for the sound made while vomiting
@J.R. I didn't see your comment until after I submitted my answer, but I agree with retch. I've added some possible contexts for the use of retch in reference to the sound instead of the action. What makes retch appropriate here is that it defines the activity of vomiting, not just the end result.
