comment What non-religious expressions can I use instead of “Thank God”?
@TheNate no, I the question requested NON-religious expressions and this is just a religious expression of a different flavour. An "undescribed higher power" is still a higher power.

comment Gender neutral version of housewife
Although this SEEMS like a good translation from the context of "housewife," really this is only going to be confusing in conversation. Guy walks up to a dad: "Hey there. What do you do?" "I'm a houseperson." "Oh, so like a contractor? You build houses?" "No, no, a houseperson!" "So... a realtor?" "No. ... like a housewife? Houseperson" "Aaaah..." (TIL It's impossible to make conversation paragraph breaks in comments...)

comment Is there an informal term for the “best company in an industry”?
A forerunner is often "first" but not "best", so it can often be confusing. Literally "one who came before". Being first chronologically does not necessarily imply the best in the industry, e.g. "Pets.com is a forerunner of today's modern online storefronts".

comment What does the word “You-ee” mean?
@Starkeen The big question in my mind is how did you not ask the person on the other end of the telephone what they meant? Did you just fake it?

comment What is the English equivalent of the Persian word “Saghi” (ساقی)?
Wait, so this person drinks from EVERYONE's wine glass before they do? Isn't this seen as unsanitary, and wouldn't the saghi become drunk if the party is large enough?

comment A correct word for 'learnful'
Due to the questioner's comment, "What I want it to mean is more abstract, including things like skills and insights and overall growth in competency," I was going to submit enlightening, but here you already have enlightening in the definition for instructive.
