comment You vs. Your — as in “Jane is confused by you/your using the metric system”
@Kris, it's a "real question". I just may be too ignorant to know that there is no correct answer. That insight is itself an answer. Good heavens this site is remarkably unhelpful.

@John, while I'm sure his heart is in the right place, that is not how the SE network is intended to operate. I'm a little dismayed that this question was closed as a duplicate wherein the alleged dup is far too high-fallutin for me to derive the answer to my question.

comment What is the plural form of “status”?
@Elenaher, nobody is saying that Latin has no use, just that it is not the final authority, especially in cases such as this.

comment Is there a difference in pronunciation between “wood” and “would”?
I tried quizzing my friend who volunteered to randomly say either "would, wood" or "wood, would" and was able to distinguish between them each time. I invite others to try the same thing. It's subtle, but I believe the tongue is more active for "would" -- it curls and remains lower in the mouth.

comment Is there a difference in pronunciation between “wood” and “would”?
your link defined one variation of the word with one defined prounciation. Thus I ask again, which are the two that you believe to have discrete pronunciations?

What are the 'two different meanings of the word "would"` to which you are referring?

@Third, yes (American) English is my first language. Out of curiosity, why do you ask?
