comment Is there a pre-defined way to describe this grammatical mistake?
Interesting. To me the "at" there seems reasonable in certain contexts because it implies some sort of progress rather than just general whereabouts. "Where are you at in your pledge drive?" seems more accurate than "where are you in your pledge drive?".

comment Is there a word for human litter-mates?
@Third News, is there an adjective for being the kind of person who offers useful looking answers on Stack that upon closer examination bear no actual relevance to the original question? ;-)

comment Is there a word for human litter-mates?
@AndrewLeach, yes, I'm hoping there's such a word. I'm actually looking to use it in a technical biological context; describing research to be done on [siblings gestated simultaneously in the womb]. Was wondering if there's a more elegant way to describe them. edit Ah! so "multiple birth" refers to a human litter. Excellent... 1/2 the problem is solved :)

comment How do you punctuate a list of titles and names?
I appreciate the advice, but I'm not asking about the best way to formulate the sentence (it *is an awkward sentence, but that's because I just whipped it up to illustrate my question, I'm sure given a moment I can come up with a more natural example that still suffers from the same problem). So, I think I have my answer now; to use semi-colons as list separators.

Thanks! I was wondering that very same thing. I appreciate not having to use a bunch of parenthesis.

This is what I was after. I understand how to rephrase the question for clarity, but I wanted to know what the right punctuation would be if I had to use the formulation of the question as stated. Thanks all.
