comment Is there a word that describes a person who constantly exaggerates?
@user1678063 could you please rewrite your comment in a more formal style - this is a very serious forum, where we all have to be dead formal.

comment Extend or go beyond a promise
This is why I love stack exchange - no other forum stimulates a full discussion so well, that always concludes with the best thinking of everyone in the room. This is the right answer. Here here.

comment is letter “y” derived from “ij”?
@tchrist I was asking for words with 'iy' not 'ij'. As to me, it seems almost equivalent to 'iij' which seems to have too many consecutive i to be an English word.

Can we make it in one hour(?) — as I want to eat my dinner now. looks crazy, but is closer to the intention.

@StoneyB Yeah, I don't want it re-written, but re-dressed only. I am trying to formulate an opinion on a general rule for this kind of stuff, where the words should not be changed, but the formatting should reveal the meaning that is clear when spoken. I think I agree with the hyphens being retained for the reasons you state. I still find the dual question marks freak me out a bit.
