comment Which is correct: “prefer X to Y” or “prefer X over Y”?
"No thanks, I prefer to walk"; The "to" in your example is part of the infinitive that you are using ("to walk"). Compare "I prefer a walk" or "Would you like (a) coffee?" "No thanks, I prefer tea".

comment Mnemonic for remembering how to spell “mnemonic”
@JSBangs O, you're not supposed to pronounce that g? Guess I've been doing that wrong too. I blame my native language :P
