comment I need a section title for a section that describes how a piece of software works
I guess my comment was code for myself stating that in my opinion simplicity in writing is a good thing, but that 'simplicity' should mean 'understandability' not low word count. I personally would use "How it works" because it's simpler than "functionality", for example. But that's just me.

Ten letters. How much shorter do you want?

comment Person whose recorded voice announces upcoming content on radio
They are not usually recorded, because part of their job is to cover in the case of unexpected events: "We apologize that due to technical difficulties we are unable to broadcast the scheduled episode of 'Jam Making Today'. Instead, here is some music."

I don't think 'a stone's throw' is related to the unit of weight stone.

'Headlinespeak' often involves just stringing nouns together. My favourite example is "England Scotland match team captain selection difficulty".

comment To + verb in sentence without any other verb
This is called 'headlinespeak', and it's a form of English where the rules of grammar are violated in order to get the headline to fit in the space available, allowing the reader to usually understand what it means and keeping the font as large as possible.
