comment Is there a word for numbers between 10 and 99?
@Lynn Depends on context. I'm sure you've heard six figure salary or that a jury awarded damages reaching well into nine figures. But yeah, agree that we'd never talk about a two figure number here in the US.

comment Reflexive love: where does “love me some …” come from?
@FumbleFingers I don't think this is a dupe of the linked question at all. This Q relates to a particular construction whereas the linked Q is about something else entirely. They do both deal with personal pronouns, but they're not the same question.
