comment “Training on” or “Training about”?
Ask Google. It seems to be used, I found results like "Scottish Training on Drugs and Alcohol (STRADA)", "Training on 'Leadership communication and political participation' for NC" and so on.

comment “Prefer to” vs “prefer than”
Well, let's add some contrast, you couldn't just switch "to" with "than", but there are constructions where you could use the word, that Shaona may have heard, misheard or misremembered. For example, you could say "I prefer bathing, rather than just lying on the beach." If you would say simply "I prefer bathing", it's implicit what you are preferring it to, but in my example "rather" is also used to explicitly state what it's being preferred over.

comment What does “vanilla” mean in the context of gaming?
@Sparr: Incorrect. Battlegrounds was not an expansion pack. "World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade (aka TBC), the first expansion for World of Warcraft" wowwiki.com/World_of_Warcraft:_The_Burning_Crusade

comment Is there an English word for a person who shares your name?
You are correct that it is ambiguos, but 'eponym' shares no traits with the Swedish word 'namne'. The Wiktionary definition for 'namne' is simply 'a person that has the same name as someone else'.

comment Is there an English word for a person who shares your name?
Technically that's not what I'm looking for. The Swedish word is never used (as far as I know) when you are named after something or someone, only when you share the name. Namesake was the best I could find.
