comment Where were “should”, “shall”, and “must” in the 18th Century?
@PeterShor: NGram is a fine tool, but what about a more mechanistic interpretation or the data... It seems to me that there is continuous decline the use of all these words after 1825 which is an absurd. What has replaced their use? What has come up in lieu of "will" or "shall"? Do people use the future tense less and less? (Maybe it suggests a manifestation of massive pessimism... )

comment Appropriate preposition to go with “concerned”
Concerned is usually followed by "about" although "with" and "on" are also grammatically correct (and "in" with a different meaning). Regarding "for" I'm not sure but you can check the usage diagram at goo.gl/3qHfP...

comment Idiom: People caring about minor stuff while something terrible is happening
OK, I see. So the Titanic idiom is more like when someone does something pointless while the one you suggest is closer to the question, I think.

comment Is there an idiom for people who boast too much?
This idiom has the meaning "Better do sth instead of talking about it" while I more needed an idiom to emphasize that sb is boasting about things they can't do. But it's a good one too.
