The tag has 23 questions. Some appear to ask for or , and should probably just be replaced by those tags.

As for the other questions, I don't see what they have in common.

What should be done with this tag?

  • Something which might work is to make it a synonym of "meaning-in-context", which should re-tag all its instances. However, questions where that would be inappropriate would need to be dealt with first.

I can't even explain why the tag exists at all, let alone what it might be supposed to mean.

I could hazard a guess that some people might feel that asking for an explanation of a preferred choice (as opposed to simply asking Should I use “such that,” “so that,” or “in a way that”?) might make a question more "On Topic" (i.e. - less a "matter of opinion").

But quite frankly, it seems to me about as useful as the tag for - I'd say get rid of both.

    We need to get rid of meaning, too. Meaning-in-context might do.

    usage is a separate discussion. I think it means "Can you tell me whether a sizeable population of English speakers would actually say it this way?" Jan 14, 2016 at 19:12
