comment What is the opposite of procrastination in one word?
That isn't quite an antonym. Procrastinate has an implicit referral to another time period in it. So, the opposite should carry with it the meaning that something is done in advance of when it needs to be done. Good effort though.

Interesting. Hyponym sounds like a subset. I like the distinction you've highlighted about aspects.

comment What is the opposite of procrastination in one word?
Precrastination seems to be a neologism. From a quick search it appears that it's sometimes used to mean the act of anticipating something.

comment Are Anglo-Saxon words better at expressing emotion?
I'm not sure about this. I speak fluent English and French. My view is that they express things in a different way. One is better for blurting things out while the other can be more elaborate.

comment Shorter, sarcastic way to express “The cook must have made a mistake”
Do you need to reformulate the phrase or just express sarcasm? If you want something that's humoristic you could have the character say something like, "Exquisitely undelicious".

@jwpat7 I've added another example. To take the first one, languages/english/spelling is more specific than languages/english.
