comment What would you call size that fits between small and medium?
Why wouldn't it be nice to rename the rest? As one of the answers mentions, using a 'extra-large' label might be suitable.

@bib why not just 'smallish'?

Sure, I think strictly speaking it doesn't need to be an adjective, I've updated the question to give context.

Sorry, to be clear the word I'm looking for is an adjective.

comment before he leave or before he leaves, which one is correct?
The answer is 'he leaves', but I'm not sure what the reasoning is. Here is a different context of two differences: 'The clock strikes 12, and I run toward the door', and 'The clock strikes 12, and he runs towards the door'.

comment a quality of being risky and dangerous but highly rewarding
Ok, trading might have been a too specific term to use. But any finance/investment action. Your definition deals with making/losing money, you wouldn't use speculative in the context of walking a tight rope or asking a colleague on a date.

That seems like a bad definition of the word. Speculation in the context of trading means when the trade is based on making profit purely on the changing market value of the asset, rather than the intrinsic value of the asset. (eg a speculator, upon seeing a bubble, might invest knowing that the asset is overvalued, with the hope of selling a the peak of the bubble. A non speculator will not.).
