comment “Graphics gallery” or “graphic gallery”
@Pacerier, that's a great point... I'll clarify the post. To answer the question, image isn't an adjective, so there's no room for confusion.

comment When do we consider English speakers' familiarity as a proof?
Re-reading my previous comment, it occurs to me that the "ear" is probably the culprit in a lot of mistakes that natives speakers make (again, applies to any language). We hear a phrase or formulation several times and come to understand what it means from the context in which it's used, but fail to understand why it means what it does. The result is millions of people who use "I could care less" when what they really mean is "I couldn't care less."

The ear often does work -- a native speaker in any language will often know the right answer but not the reason for it.

Seems like this question would be more appropriate for meta.

comment What's a better word than “colon-ized” or “title-rrhea” for this style in book titles?
+1 for beating me to it! Linked commentators notwithstanding, I'm not sure that it's really a problem. It's just different. Considering that about 33 new titles are published every hour in the US, descriptive subtitles may just be a marketing necessity.

comment Using “will” twice in a sentence
Perhaps you mean "When you come to see me we'll have dinner together"? The *we is still there, just contracted with will.

comment Using “will” twice in a sentence
I may well have misunderstood. In the OP's version, both wills are bold, so the anaphoric emphasis seemed intentional.
