comment What would you call size that fits between small and medium?
@TimLymington, Pratchett would have had a character (Medium Dave Lilywhite, maybe?) call it "extra medium".

comment *seniority* in the context of work
@Ilanysong, I would use "rank" or "level" to indicate this, preferring "level" to indicate their pay grade, while either is an indication of how much responsibility/authority their position holds. In fact, you could say that the rank/level actually goes with the position, while seniority goes with the person, regardless of rank (until you start getting into complex union rules maybe :))

comment *seniority* in the context of work
+1, but in the context of employment, I would say that seniority always refers to length of service. See: humanresources.about.com/od/workplaces-organizations/g/…

comment The suffix -hood
@MrHen sorry, that was not meant as a critique, but as a joke and to more or less underscore that abnormality.

comment The suffix -hood
"Timmy had a miserable child- and adulthood"...that hyphen could pass for a dash, which makes the sentence read that Timmy, upon achieving adulthood, had a miserable child in tow.

comment Is this phrase correct “but slightly they succeed”?
Part of the problem here is that the original action to which "succeed" refers ("remove") is not one that "slightly" is good at modifying.

comment A word for the answer that is “the” answer
Not a perfect match, but the phrase that comes to mind is "sweet spot", as in "that answer hit the the sweet spot".

comment Are collective nouns taught at school (and one has to learn them) or are they just a fun thing?
More importantly, what would you call a classroom of students learning about collective nouns?

comment Proper Use of “Disponibility”
If you'd asked me, without this context, I would have said it was a coinage for "lack of responsibility". Of course, "dismember" is not the opposite of "remember", either :)
