@Mynamite I definitely have (and therefore had a heads-up on the pronunciation); based in England here.

Also the word lie in mathematics can be pronounced to rhyme with hilly too... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lie_group

Me neither; I spotted it while searching for multityped to see if it could be used as one word, moments before you posted your answer.

There's even more confusion than that if you use multi-typed with Pokemon, though: pokemondb.net/ability/multitype

comment What is the appropriate preposition for “mailing list”?
I am on the BDD mailing list, the "Lonely Coaches Sodality" mailing list and the "Sheep and Cheese" list, amongst others. The "Foobar" becomes an noun adjunct (used to be called an adjectival noun, so it's a noun which describes another noun). The "the" goes with the word "list", so I believe it stays in the presence of the adjective. Similar examples: "Isn't that the James Bond car over there?" and "I was thinking about the Moby Dick example you gave in the last question." In this case both James Bond and Moby Dick are proper nouns too.

You subscribe to mailing lists as well (not in).

comment The pupils were explained everything to by the teacher
I'm curious about this. Even if it was "everything was explained the pupils", that's still obviously incorrect... but why? Why can money be given to me, and the teacher explain everything to me, but take a different construction when it's in the passive voice?
