comment Which word is used more in the UK: 'gaol' or 'jail'?
Stieg Larsson's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo contains the word "gaol". I had never seen it before, so I considered it a typo. Only when I came across it several more times during the novel did I realise that it is a real word.

comment What does “it is but X” mean?
You could think of an omitted "nothing" before the "but", as in they are nothing but thoughts.
