comment Is there a word for fake kindness or hospitality?
I know what word you're looking for (you can probably guess how I know) and I don't think it has an exact equivalent in English, probably because it's not really part of the culture.

comment What are entries of the same year called
Doesn't it depend on whether you're talking about undergraduate or graduate? e.g. if you're a PhD coming in 2010, doesn't that make you class of 2010 rather than (say) class of 2016, since it's hard to predict when you'd be graduating?

That could be in an answer of its own. I kind of expected a common definition irrespective of the region (aside from soft drink), so if there really isn't a single common secondary meaning then that's good information to put in an answer, and not something I'd find by looking at a dictionary.

+1 for some reason I didn't realize the connection between baking soda and drinking soda until you mentioned it, cool!

I'll wait a bit before accepting since only a few minutes have passed, but your answer is good so if there aren't any more and I forget, feel free to ping me and I'll accept yours. :) Thanks!

The dictionary only tells me the meanings it could have, not which meanings actually dominate the usage in the general population.
