comment “Will be doing” vs. “will do”
@Pacerier I don't have sources (neither does that answer). I disagree with this from that answer: "Both refer to walking home in the future, but the first statement is used when referring to the next thing you are going to do". There is no requirement that the simple form be the next action. "I will drive to my parents' house so they can borrow my car. I will walk home." Lots of stuff might happen before "I will walk home". It's just a statement about a future action; it needn't be bound to any other statements.

comment “Baggage” versus “luggage”
Every US airport I've ever been in has directed people to "baggage claim" to collect their stuff at the end of the flight.

comment which pronoun do I use here, “he” or “him”?
Hi trin and welcome to Writers. Please try to use meaningful titles for your questions -- don't use something like "editing question" but instead try to summarize your actual question. I've edited several of your titles; please take a look at those edits to see what I mean.

comment Is the use of the preposition “on” and the parentheses in the sentence below correct?
Glad to help @midomido. If this answer meets your needs you could accept it (so other people will know you're satisfied), but it's also totally fine to hold out for something better.

comment Is the use of the preposition “on” and the parentheses in the sentence below correct?
@midomido unfortunately I don't know if there are dialects of English where "on" would be used -- I don't know of any, but I don't want to say none exist. As far as I know "for" is never wrong, so I would opt for that. (I'll clarify my answer.)

comment Instantiate a Video Player?
It depends on the audience. I'm a technical writer and I use the word "instantiate" if I'm writing for, say, Java programmers, because it's technically correct. But if I were writing end-user doc for non-programmers I probably wouldn't.

comment Instantiate a Video Player?
We've had other questions here about words that have a precise technical meaning, I thought. I don't think this is off-topic.
