comment What is a word that means “a person or thing which is small yet capable of defeating big giants”?
"Be careful, that guy is a real David." Who would say something like that? At least I've never heard it, I know the story and still it doesn't sound right. I would never guess what you meant.

comment Why are “put” and “but” different in their pronunciation?
@JonHanna You might be right. I'm looking forward to seeing the answer to this.

comment When listing features of something, do I need to use “it” before “has”?
Not a direct answer, but I would probably use two different sentences; one for the description of the phone itself and another for its features. "The smartphone is blue, small, and lightweight. It has three buttons, two cameras..."

@OliverMason Thanks, I assumed the ellipsis was not a literal example, and the OP meant that the sentence actually continues. I'm sure that's the case and he's writing some copy (in which case, the fewer words the better). Does my edit make sense to you? I may be out of my element on this site, I don't really have the technical chops.

Sorry, I meant that there is no reason - that's just the way it is, and the more you learn about the language the more you will see examples of these kind of inconsistencies.

comment How can I say “not any time soon, but it won't take a long time either”?
@Marthaª The thing about that is, it doesn't give you an out if the upgrade never happens, while "it won't happen soon" does. ;)

comment How can I say “not any time soon, but it won't take a long time either”?
@FumbleFingers Either one sounds right to me, but "expect" does sound better. Yes "immediately soon" was just grasping at straws, hoping to explain what I was going for. I Googled it with much doubt.
