removed the speculation about the French language that was marked as offensive to francophones.

comment Is the phrase “has got” grammatically correct?
The character limits are there for a reason. Next time, please expound on your answer. We really do want to hear more about it.

comment Can you further categorise 'Modern English'?
What are you asking here? What do you mean by array or decompose? If you asking what constitutes Modern English, you have a link in your question that answers that. If you aren't, then focus on communicating clearly rather than leveraging excessively florid vocabulary. It makes it sound like you are trying to show off, which makes your last statement sound like false modesty, not to mention that your word choices are less than stellar.

comment What is a “gilded shell” in Eliot's Wasteland?
@Fumble I'm not sure that it is obvious that "gilded shell" is a metaphor in this context.

comment What do you call snow that has collected between a car body and the tire?
The word limit exists for a reason, which is to encourage you to explain and support your answer. I realize that most of the answers are also slim, but they do include location information, for instance.

@Mari-LouA Heh. I guess I was looking at the edit date. I did think it sounded familiar...

comment Do you know the meaning of the American idiom “pot calling the kettle black”?
@Mari-LouA I still feel it's off-topic as worded. There are 3 reopen votes though; you might consider raising this on Meta.
