comment What is the adjective counterpart for the word correspond? Is it “correspondial”, as in “Our relationship is only corresponial for now.”
I suppose you could call it an epistolary relationship.

comment “Come out with your hands up… and something with coconut”

comment What do you call call a female philosopher?
@Tonepoet What are the gendered words for 'male nurse', 'male teacher', 'male daycare provider', or 'male secretary'? Men are just as capable of holding those jobs and nobody seems to be concerned that we need to be reminded of that. It's not about gendered terms. It's about marked versus unmarked.
