comment Is there an apostrophe in “number of years experience?”
I'm not sure whether the first one is acceptable. The second one is definitely wrong, while the third one is correct. Check out also this post: writing-skills.com/years-experience-or-years-experience

"Bob has 4 years of experience" or "Bob has an experience of 4 years" or "Bob has a four-year experience" (as in "a four-year old child").

comment What's a good word for 'clear mindedness' and 'an ability to see something as a whole'?
How about acumen... According to OED it means "Sharpness of wit, quickness or penetration of perception, keenness of discrimination; (now esp.) the ability to make good judgements and decisions."

comment Is there a verb that describes speaking with a full mouth?
Not to be confused with "foul mouth" or to be "foul-mouthed" (i.e., to speak in a profane/blasphemous manner)

comment Electronic module or unit?
I doubt that this Q&A is the best place to ask this question, but anyway... A module pertains to an architecture that is modular, i.e., you can plug-out your implementation and plug-in something else. The term unit can often be used interchangeably with module; for instance we say "graphics processing unit" and not "module". Unless there is a well-established way to call it, you can freely use either.

comment How to describe a person with the qualities give in the body of this question?
Nice one, but a "jack-of-all-trades" (master of none) is a person who, indeed, can do a lot of different things, but is not necessarily doing very well in any of these, so this expression is expected to have a negative nuance.

comment “a wottle of bine”, “a can of boot reer” and “holed and sealed” - What types of speech errors are these?
How about a "slip of the tongue", or - in some cases - a "Freudian slip" or a "parapraxis"...
