comment Positive format of the word 'weird'?
@CarSmack: That could be a pleonasm if we considered the core meaning of unique. But, unique has developed a less precise meaning in 19th century: "very remarkable, special, or unusual". So we can most certainly say it is the most unique adjective :)

@JanusBahsJacquet: Sorry, I don't agree. It can be used in these situations too. I explained the details what you exactly said. You don't know how loud the music is also. You can drown out the sound just to be heard, it is not just making completely inaudible.

comment Word for “hold softly”?
In your example sentence, it wouldn't make sense to use "hold" or any related words. You can use "opened" there. Or you can say "Sophia held my hand, opened my palm, and dropped the jewel onto it."

Current meaning can be an extension or related to old meaning also.

comment Word for “someone who warns”
@itsbruce: I didn't ignore anything. I thought it is fair to mention so people know it. Our word is "monitor" also, not "hall monitor". Monitor has a current meaning who watches over or in charge of something, and that meaning is implied in "Hall Monitor" too. The obsolete meaning of monitor that I meant is someone who warns of faults or admonishes. The second meaning in your answer sounds like the definition of hall monitor but there are other kind of monitors also. When maintaining order, they might warn people but it is not a definition, it can be just part of their duty.
