We French say "call a cat a cat" but surely the racist variant is nice too…

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.

Thank you for making your comment an answer, I believe the multiple center embedding is the key here.

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?

comment Sorry I'm late, the car wouldn't start this morning!
@ArmenԾիրունյան (thanks autocompletion): Josh put the emphasis on Had to go (past tense), because it happened yesterday. Also, the quotation has a she wouldn't say (refused to say). So the lyrics answer both questions of the user at once.

comment “Came undone” in this context?
@ColinFine The point being that undone as unfastened comes as an opposite of done being fastened?

comment Is the genderless pronoun “they” appropriate and grammatical for a non-binary gender?
@LegoStormtroopr Kris' umbrella was left in our house. I disagree with Rahul here: if this person is picky enough to ask people to use "they" to refer to he/she, then don't give him/her this pleasure and reword everything to avoid such case. Or should I say: if this person is picky enough and wants to be referred to with the pronoun"they", don't let this pleasure be given and reword everything.
