comment Word meaning notes about a document
Thanks for these responses. I was curious whether there was a specific word for this, the way - for example - "errata" means "errors in this document", but I will continue to use the generic "About this document".

comment Why is “the tail/house of the dog” correct, but “the bowl of the dog” not?
I would challenge that proposition. I am of the opinion that "the house of the dog" and "the tail of the dog" are grammatically permissible but not fluent. The problem comes from transliterating directly from languages which use noun-verb order, while English uses verb-noun. For example, in Maltese (my native language), we would say "id-dhar ta-kelb" = "the house of the dog". In English, we swap the verb-noun, it becomes "the dog's house".
