comment What is a single word to describe beating someone brutally?
I just searched U.S. news outlets for use of the word "brutalize" and could not find a single use indicating rape.

comment Is it “alright” or “allright”?
Makes sense in a way, but I think you're alone in making this distinction. In particular, it'd be hard to distinguish these when spoken (rather than written).

comment Is it “alright” or “allright”?
I would call the latter "completely wrong." But, like many things in English, it's completely acceptable these days. Language evolves.

comment Other expression for “Off the top of my head”
I've noticed a LOT of people seem to have signature phrases they use, especially when giving talks. "Right?", "Ok?", "you see...", etc. One friends appends "for that" to the end of everything he says... drives me nuts. Anyway, I think you're smart to try and diversify.

comment What are the distinctions between “authoritarian”, “totalitarian”, and “dictatorial”?
Can you explain what characteristics make (say) Qaddafi an autocrat rather than a despot? Are these examples well-accepted, or more from personal opinion?
