Almost minored in English in college, but didn't. I've edited several small press books (no longer in print) and authored a few magazine articles, but nothing too stellar.

comment Is there a single word for date of death?
You can just shorten that to "Expiration: xx/xx/xxxx" or "Expired: xx/xx/xxxx" where xx is the date of death.

comment What is the proper hyphenation of “and a half” in the context of age?
Not a fan of the "½" character. Oh look, it didn't even conform to how you typed it in the answer.

@WS2 - this week's episode of Archer had an excellent example of proper figurative/literal usage; like most Archer jokes though, the punchline arrives well after the set-up.
