comment How many of the “Top 10 favorite British words” are understood by Americans?
"Plonk" was used quite a bit in the dark comedy hit movie "sideways" a few years ago. The characters were wine experts. Ordinary Americans might say swill, Thunderbird, Boone's Farm, or rotgut.

comment Is or “verse” or a homonym of “verse” another word for versus?
Irrelevant, really, but I've heard my young son and many of his friends use "verse" as a verb, repeatedly: "I am going to verse him in chess"; "I versed him in Pokemon and won!"

comment What's the opposite word for “sin”?
@Mari-LouA Wow. Just... wow. Major Stack Exchange malfunction? I swear on a stack of OEDs that when I saw this question and answered it, it had no answers. For some reason, the question was being displayed with no answers at all.

comment Does erudite carry positive or negative or neutral connotation?
Well... No. You can simply not be conscious of your voice, and perhaps your erudition will shine through naturally.

comment Can “We would be happy if everyone is good, therefore we have no military force” and “Japan have military force” be congruent grammatically?
The grammar in both of these quotes is very bad. Were all of these mistakes in the original article?
