comment What does the idiom, 'bolt from the fold', mean?
It's not just "people who want to say nasty things about churchgoers" who liken congregations to sheep. Jesus Christ refers to himself as a shepherd and his people as sheep, for example in John 10:14.

comment If A is a component of B, then what is B relative to A?
A Mentor is not "one who ments," but rather "someone who acts like the character in The Odyssey whose name was Mentor". Mentor was a father figure to young Telemachus while Odysseus was at war. Thus, "Mentee" is not a good choice for an example of the word relationship you are talking about.

comment “Robust” as a noun
In the same way that we say, "Youth is wasted on the young," we might say "Only the robust should attempt this hike." But a "robust person" or "robust worker" or something else that makes sense in context could work.

It is used in this workplace stack exchange answer. There are 34 uses in the Ars Technica OpenForum Boardroom. I've never heard it spoken in person.
