comment How does one correctly use “q.v.”?
@pacerier that's not the literal meaning, but in a sense it's saying something like that. "Compare" and "go to see" are not that far apart.

Ah, nevermind, I found it. But that's not what I said in the comment.

@Pacerier Sorry, I don't think I ever saw your comment. Which comment of mine are you referring to?

comment Pronunciation of words ending with “‑ae”
@sumelic I don't see the problem: the question has a latin tag and since the words are clearly latin, my answer is certainly not out of place.

comment What do you call words that look like a negation but are not?
@Pacerier I'm not sure I understand your question. The etymology for "dejected" shows that "de-" comes from the Latin verb dēĭcĕre which can be translated as "throw down". Now, the meaning of the verb is negative, as in, it doesn't portray a good action. This would need research on how it reflects in some of the verbs you listed (although the link is clear), but not all verbs starting with "de-" share the same history just because they have the same syllable, see for example "decimeter" and "dead".

comment “farne di tutti i colori” in English
You could ask the mods to migrate it over to E&LU. Flag your question with a custom reason and ask there. It's an interesting question, but I agree with DaG.
