UPDATE Currently suspended on Meta SE for one month (October 13, 2021) because this comment was the final straw....

Comments mostly deleted because it seems I was instigating the closure of a site, luckily I had left the page open so I took a screenshot.

–Original EL&U Profile–

It's been suggested that I add the following description on my profile. The linked post also probably says more about "me" than I could or would want to say.

Born in the UK, living in N. Italy for too many years, but a frequent visitor to the UK and Ireland.

I like asking questions more than answering, so in no particular order, here are few of my favourite questions

  1. Is the etymology of "salary" a myth?
  2. What happened to the “ch” in moschito?
  3. Did the English call a fruit “openærs” for 700 years?
  4. Is there an etymological explanation for the silent ‘g’ in “paradigm”?
  5. SNL's Black Jeopardy: What does "fid'na" mean?
  6. Where on Earth is "penguin" from?
  7. Why were slum kids called “urchins”?
