A: Why can't I turn 'fast-paced' into a quality noun by adding the '-ness' suffix?

tchristWhy sure you can, and indeed you have just your done so! I really cannot imagine what it is that makes you think you cannot do what you have just yourself done. Do you mistrust your own eyes? What’s the source of your afraidness here regarding fast-pacedness? Perhaps it’s just its nonceness or a...

Weren't we talking the other day about how people turning language into a dead and lifeless thing?
I’m just waiting for somebody to tell me I need a hyphen in anal retentiveness.

Q: The translation of "I never said she stole my money."

PedroskiTranslation nightmare! Is this an acceptable translation of the sentence "I never said she stole my money."? If it is acceptable, is there any, even slight, trace of ambiguity in the Chinese sentence “我从来没说过她把我的钱偷走了。”? She stole your money? 她偷了你的钱? I never said she stole my money. 我从来没说过她把我的...

Aren't languages wonderful!!!

What could be the adjective to Kuban (noun), a region in the south of Russia, I wonder.

@tchrist @AndrewLeach could any of you delete the user last reported by smokedetector, he has an offensive profile as well.
@Luuklag What profile? :)

@CowperKettle If it's anything like Sudan, then Sudanese. But if it's like human, then human.
@Robusto Beautiful.
Yeah, the flat one looks better, colors are also more natural.

Russian-wide competition or Russia-wide competition?
The latter.
Or pan-Russian.
Or competition amongst all Russians.
Competition in all of Russia.
Overuse of compound adjectives and noun attributes is generally advised against.
Hi all!
Can I say "it is my way to communicating with people"? With or Of?
Alas, no.
I would not understand that sentence.
I enjoy painting, it is my way to communicating with the world
This is the context
How should the sentence be?
> It is my way of communicating with the world.
It is my way to communicate with the world.
> It is how I communicate with the world.
(Even more concise.)

Official context
I enjoy making videos with Premiere Pro,
After Effects and Photoshop, as it is a way to express my creativity. It is like art for me,
it is my way of communicating with people
Now is it ok?
So the first two examples are of + gerund OR to + infinitive.
@Curio Yes, sounds good.
Thanks :D
Never use [of + infinitive]; and [to + gerund] is uncommon (usually wrong).

Q: What does J.S.J.P. stand for?

CerberusThere is this title page of a "disputation" (a kind of academic thesis?), which begins with the abbreviation J.S.J.P. Because it is the first line, I would expect it to be some kind of benediction, like Quod Deus Bene Vertat. On the other hand, it is a legal subject, so perhaps it could be some k...

@tchrist More different faces for you.
The other image is about the thesis of one of my relatives.

@Cerberus If it were modern, I’d guess “Jesus saves, Jesus protects.”
@Xanne Modern?
You mean English?
I suppose Jesus Servat, Jesus Protegit is possible in Latin.
@Robusto Good explanations.
Though some of the examples of non-science she mentions are arguably not pseudo-science.
Yes, I meant English. But even in Latin, the “de” does not seen to follow.
