comment Is it a correct expression to use “impressed upon” this way?
@Gaia, I'm not sure what you mean. How would you decipher its meaning from the phrase "It's imperative that we impress upon congress that that its urgent that they act on Climate Change." Or would you take issue with my usage here? Other synonyms are persist, persevere, and repeat and pound away. Maybe you're just not familiar with this useage? (I believe it's actually the most common!)

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 :)
