comment Opposite of change?
Can you explain in more words than one what the opposite would be in your words? Change means what is left over after you subtract what is yours. How can there be an opposite of that?

comment I need one-word expression for “Ignoring someone intentionally”
Hmm, in what way can "ignore" be not intentional? Can you give an example? Happy to widen my horizon. For me, ignoring is something that is done actively, despite circumstances that may be set against my intention to ignore, but not accidentally. The accidental case would be to "miss something happening" or some such. "Ignoring" implies intent, because you can only ignore what you are aware of. If you are not aware of it, you may miss it happening, but in order to ignore something you have to know it exists in the first place.

comment Why is there no comma before “and” before this independent clause?
Jos, do you have a background of German? Because in German, (at least before they Neue Rechtschreibung), two clauses connected with "und" will require a comma before the "und", when both clauses are complete in their own right. This may be a wrong transference to English. Tom fuhr nach Frankreich, und Dick fuhr nach Belgien. The comma is required in German, not in English.

That does not answer the question: "... when listing the last name first"!

comment He began to breathe deep / deeply
@Myself: can you show a quote reference? The only result Google brings up for 'He began to breathe deep' is this question and a few quotes that include more words after deep that justify the use of deep as an adjective instead of an adverb.
