comment A single word for a person who couldn't fulfill his/her dream
Can you use it in a sentence in the context of the question? I don't see how it would work. (Also, you need the accent on the é, otherwise it is a different word.)

comment “Would prefer to do something ” vs. “would prefer doing something”
@Kris, yes there is: I'd prefer strawberry to chocolate. It's the same shape as Cheiloproclitic's sentence: I'd prefer walking to driving.

comment Is there a word describing the first number in a multiplication?
I have a degree in mathematics, and I've never heard of one factor being called the multiplier and the other the multiplicand. It seems like pointless terminology to me since the order of multiplication doesn't matter here. Worse, it is ambiguous since both factors could be called multipliers or multiplicands.
