I have created a synonym for ramazan; I wa...

just to give you an idea of the sorts of synonyms i feel are obvious and the ones i feel may warrant further discussion.
on an unrelated note, i really am looking forward to this queue being tried, tested and polished and eventually added to here:

Q: Help Improve The Help & Improvement Queue!

Tim PostA short time ago, we introduced the new triage queue - a place where users can quickly sort questions into various categories, where one of those categories is 'needs improvement'. Until now, we've been alluding to a special place where questions that weren't quite ready for prime exposure could ...

Yeah, that sounds awesome. Should prove helpful for pretty much all the SE sites.
