comment What do you call a sick person who is lying in bed?
@ArmenԾիրունյան - :-) I have always understood it to mean that some illness has hit me hard and knocked me over. A picturesque way of saying no longer upright but horizontal.

comment A word for that which is created from a template?
It is true that I am writing software but I am looking for a term to communicate an idea to a non-IT person. That is why I posed the question here. I really don't want an IT answer.

@Jim lol - Good job our screens are bigger nowadays - that kind of naming would never fit on 3270 teminal display!

What about 'derivative'? Wikipedia: "a modification of an original work"

comment What is the difference between an Emperor and a King?
@Andrew Leach - He was King of England etc but Emperor of India. Emperor because there were many kingdoms in India and therefore many kings. King because there were no other kings in England, Scotland and Wales. The situation in Germany was different. There were many kingdoms, each with a king and one emperor over the whole area. Therefore, I disagree that the difference is only between wonderful and terrific - there is a political aspect too.
