comment Which one is correct to say: “It's me” or “It's I”?
When I was little my mother took a pen to a children's book and replaced every instance of "it's me" with "it's I." That didn't stop me from using the former though in conversation.

comment Why does “impregnable” mean *cannot be impregnated*?
Personally, I can't remember ever seeing "impregnable" used to mean "cannot be impregnated." It seems like a simple mistake though given its morphology.

comment Is there an informal way to describe a woman that can not have a baby?
This is just like how there's no polite single word for "to have sex with." The only way to say "he [verb that means sex]ed her" in polite company is through a euphemism such as "slept with."

comment Is “fastly” a correct word?
Are you sure about this? I find "I ran fast" to sound grammatically incorrect, but that may just be the strict (and sometimes wrong) education I was raised on. I wouldn't feel comfortable writing that in a formal situation.

comment Has technology slowed or stopped the development of the core English language?
The future generation will have no idea that "fail" was once a verb.
