comment Why isn't a definite article used before “a labyrinth”?
I tend to think of English as being a very strict set of rules, each of which has the caveat at the end "except when it isn't".

comment “A healthy amount” of sugar… so… no sugar? =(
I have a hard time believing the close votes that this is an opinion based question. It's rooted in the definition. In fact, @StorymasterQ answered the question in his comment referring to MW definition 4(b), I just haven't had time to turn that into an answer (Q if you did turn that into an answer I would probably accept it).

comment “A healthy amount” of sugar… so… no sugar? =(
I suppose if we're on the topic of my personal coffee habits and not the word itself... I do add two glugs of milk. Real milk, not the white-colored-water known as skim.

@user3058846 wouldn't that be that the relationship is in good health?

comment “A healthy amount” of sugar… so… no sugar? =(
I need my job's benefits package to stay healthy. I need to get work done to keep my job. I need coffee to get work done. I need sugar to enable me to drink coffee. In the long run, it's healthier!!

comment Is there a good word for a square-rectangle relationship?
@Grady I think saying every pair is a bit of hypobole. I mean... crap...

I can't seem to find anything on the Internet using "dot com numbers". Is that a phrase localized to some place?

comment What is a word that means “someone who pretends to be your friend but is actually your enemy?”
I don't know if this is coincidence or not, but I've only ever seen this in cases where money or a reward was involved.

comment Meaning of “Mr Right's first name is Always”
It's tough because this relies on two pop culture/colloquial expressions in order to make the joke. But like they say, if you have to explain the joke, there is no joke.

comment Why is Gilt a word when we have Gilded? Is this town big enough for the both of them?
In all honesty, Edwin, I only hear "speeded" from schoolchildren and I never hear "bended". I will admit to having heard "burnt" and "burned" - usually, "burnt" when describing food and "burned" for everything else. I bet that has an interesting history just like Gild.

comment Why is Gilt a word when we have Gilded? Is this town big enough for the both of them?
@choster Kind of, but not really. That question seems to reinforce my point that each 'dual word' has a history behind it. It is that history that I'm looking for in this question, which would never be addressed by that question.

comment Why is Gilt a word when we have Gilded? Is this town big enough for the both of them?
@tchrist I've never seen learnt and lent used legitimately (in that context. I've obviously seen lent as loaned or as a religious holiday). I have occasionally seen both gilded and gilt, though.

These days? You could call them "broke", despite their 18 hour days...

comment A word for one who loves only one girl throughout his life
In this context, "love" is meant to be an intimate, generally sexual, relationship. If a "one man man" is intended to not be a selfish person, he would by definition be a gay man.
