comment Opposite of witty
@Theodore Broda Hm, sounds like "corny" may not be the word I'm after. All of the definitions I read for it have to do with something trite or sentimental. But I'm talking about something that was either forced or a stretch - saying something unnatural where a person might accuse you of trying to hard.

What exactly does corny mean? I've always struggled with this word since none of my friends or family use it. Can it simply describe a response that is un-clever, forced, lame? Is it a catch-all for bad lines (or jokes) that you deliver?

comment Can a clause have more than one (in)direct object?
I was confused at first because I thought you were talking about sentences and not clauses. Be sure to reword your first sentence as "...any English clause... can only contain..."

comment What's the word describing a person who's multi-racial?
Interesting point, about language following history. This helps explain why there's no elegant term for it yet, as you point out. It's a shame...
