comment Is there a term for the inability to find a word which is then substituted with a “funnier” word?
@SteveBennett If the question was worded slightly differently, you'd have the perfect answer for it.

comment Term for phrases which are synonymous as a whole but antonymous on a literal reading
Have you looked into chiasmuses (or chiasmi)? An example would be something like: "I wonder if he is working hard or hardly working?"

comment Stronger word for “selfish”
My impression is that avaricious has more to do with the greed for material and wealth rather than the type of egocentricity that is characteristic of excessively selfish people.

comment Is there a word or phrase meaning to plant my idea in someone else’s mind?
Does it have the same level of subtlety or complexity in the way the idea is introduced into someone's head, or does this feel a little bit too mechanical?

comment What is the word for a person who worships but never helps others?
@user867 Thanks for the correction. Most of the Christians I have come across are very evangelistic, but I shouldn't be making sweeping assumptions. There's also nothing saying that this is a Christian God we are referring to... it could be a Buddhist God in which case I think that kind of behaviour might not be seen in a bad light.

comment What is a person who never leaves a tip called?
I am sure that even Australians know that you have to tip in countries like the US where tipping is customary... we watch enough US tv programs to know that at least (I hope). My US friends will tip Australian waiters even though they also probably know that you don't need to.

comment What is the word for a person who worships but never helps others?
Seems like this falls into a particular class of hypocrisy because I would have thought that spreading the word of God and helping other people is in line with their belief/faith.
