comment Are the cats and dogs of the idiom “it's raining cats and dogs” plural in usage?
Without disagreeing with one word of the comments above: if someone were to say "those are cats and dogs out there!" I think I'd find it a clever, original, and charming turn of phrase.

comment Is the sentence “Success is determined by how you are determined to succeed” wrong?
Enormous differences in meaning, yes. The sentence you've written can't be read as inspiring or encouraging; it sounds like an easy falsifiable assertion.

comment Is a “Tale” less factual than a “Story”?
I'm rather shocked that in none of the answers has anyone brought up "The Canterbury Tales", certainly an early and famous use of the word -- and one in which "tale" is used to connote fiction.

comment Is this correct use of 'respectively'?
Nonidiomatic, but surely not wrong. It's perfectly comprehensible to a native speaker.
