comment “Throw you with a stone” vs “Throw a stone at you”
@anotherdave which is why this is an interesting question. But when you say "I will throw you with a stone", it's not you I throw, on the contrary to "I will cut you with a knife", in which case I would indeed be cutting you

comment What is the best word for “kitchen products” on an e-commerce website?
@CanisLupus in Gaurav's defense, you can just as well use adjectives in an e-commerce categorization. An adjective isn't less of word than a noun.

comment I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand times: English doesn't make sense
I like this answer but it doesn't explain why English needs it and other languages don't. There is no need in rythm in Danish or German?
