comment “An SATA device”? Weird article choice in suggested edit
In this case, but for SQL I think the other user would have been correct because I pronounce it "Ess Queue Ell" - though some of my co-workers pronounce it "Sequel", so they say "send me a SQL script" and I say "send me an SQL script". Is there any way to know for sure when someone sees a new acronym if it should be pronounced as a single word or spelled out letter by letter?

comment Using your voice as an instrument
That wouldn't apply to a yodeler. I think OP is looking for a word that applies to all styles of vocal music that are not actual singing.

comment The sound made when eating
The terms "gustatory sounds", "gustatory noises", or "sounds of gustation" might fit best with what the OP wants.

comment Why don't writers make more use of the word “abracadabra”?
Abracadabra is a mnemonic for the Latin alphabet What is your source for this? Also, where else have you seen Efragahefra or Ijrakalijra?

Depending on how this text will be presented, maybe you could use some sort of font style change such as a different colour or font?

I'm guessing the Five Pointed Star is used the same as an asterisk? End of Aya and Start Of Rub El Hizb sound like they would be used to mark the begining or end of a specific type of block of text. Place of Sajdah... Maybe some kind of placeholder?

comment what is the term when the kingdom ruler changes through an assassination
...changing the king in a quick time through assassination... I'm not sure if there's an existing term, how about "Revolving-door Monarchy"? Is there a specific episode in history that you are thinking of?

comment Is it OK to use “empty-handed” on an animal?
@Mari-LouA: Saying the seagull was "empty-beaked" would probably work.
