@FumbleFingers, Hmm, so "viz" does have a use here, to explicate details isn't it?

comment What is the opposite of “meta”?
What about "unmeta"? If x is "metadata", then unmeta-x will give you "data"

comment Differences between e.g., viz. and i.e.
@Lynn, Just to clarify, I'm not comparing e.g. here, I'm comparing i.e. with viz. Look at the sentence "he likes some fruits, viz, apples and oranges". The viz part is restating/clarifying the previous part "some fruits". In this case, wouldn't i.e. be more appropriate?

Why can't c.f. be used in these cases?

comment How does one correctly use “q.v.”?
Is cf accepted usage here? Eg. "Discussion of the Magi begins in the previous commentary (c.f.)."?

comment Is it correct to use “punctuation outside of the quotations”, or “inside?”
@MichaelKjörling, Yes, so it has nothing to do with being logical/illogical; it's simply clearer and less ambiguous.

@Jim, But "specifically" cannot replace all cases. So it's not really a good comparison imo.

comment Differences between e.g., viz. and i.e.
@Lynn, In your answer, you haven't stated what exactly is the difference between i.e. and viz. What's the difference between "he likes some fruits, viz, apples and oranges" and "he likes some fruits, i.e., apples and oranges"?

@FumbleFingers, Agree with the first point. However, for the second point, how would you concisely convey the info that his family only includes his parents and two sisters?
