comment Confused: I have a tendency to begin sentences after semicolon by using verbs in the participle. What am I doing wrong?
@curious if you feel strongly about it, you could propose it on Meta.

@curiousdannii We have lots of punctuation questions here.

This isn't a question for Writers; it centers on how to appropriately use a semi-colon.

comment What is it called when words are deliberately spelled incorrectly but pronunciation is kept unchanged?
@Joe I edited your comment to include the edit you had made to the question. I think it is a valid point, but should be a comment and not an edit. Please flag this comment for mod attention if you want to discuss it, or flag this as obsolete if you are OK with the change.

comment Is there a term for when the moisture on the inside of your nose freezes when breathing in on a very cold day?
Nose freeze is what we call it, sometimes snot freeze. Not to be confused with snotcicle, which is when your snot freezes on the outside of your nose.

comment What is 'pink' and what is 'magenta'?
Seriously though. Even men wouldn't call violet and lilac pink. They are clearly in the purple category, similar to "grape" and "lavender" above.

comment Has “aught” survived in common usage?
I live in Maine, and we do occasionally use aught else to mean nothing else: "He was standing in the driveway, shoveling snow in his socks and aught else. He had aught else to say in his own defense." I don't think I've seen it written thus, but it's part of our local dialect.

The character limits are there for a reason. Next time, please expound on your answer. We really do want to hear more about it.
