  • I am looking for a word, analogous to "self", that refers to any other person. I am now using "other" but that is too general because it is not specific to another person; it can refer to another thing.

  • I would like to propose an definition for a homonym:
    Ellipsing: travelling along an elliptical path. Analogous to circling. For example: The seasons changed as the earth continued ellipsing the sun.

  • Someone who believes the correct astronomical model has Earth and planets revolving around a stationary Sun.

  • The word “misunderstanding” refers to a failure to understand correctly; a mistake. It is benign and unintentional. But often a deliberate and disingenuous interpretation is given for the evidence. The facts are spun; misunderstanding is feigned but remains plausibly deniable.

    I suggest the new word “disunderstanding” to describe this deliberate and misleading storytelling. I have looked through synonyms for “misinterpretation” and don’t see an existing word that conveys this meaning. If you think of an existing word, please let us know.

    Because a disunderstanding is a deliberate deception it is disrespectful and manipulative. It creates a barrier to authentic expression.

  • Apparently there is no word for 11th in order.

  • This can also describe a bright orange-red color. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tangelo_(color)#Tangelo

  • I see xanadu appearing in color lists, but none of the definitions describe a color. Apparently it is a greenish-grey color named after the leaves of the Xanadu cultivar of Philodendron. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xanadu_(colour)

  • Can you please add: sinopia, nankeen, and Tangelo. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_colors for more. Perhaps you would be willing to open this list. Thanks!

  • I object to the use of the word “production” when it pertains to extracting crude oil from the ground as in the phrase “oil production”. The oil was produced by natural processes over a period of 200 million years. The oil industry profits from this natural resource by discovering, claiming, and extracting it, but not by producing it. “Oil extraction” is more correct. Is there a better word to use here?
