@Randal'Thor Oh, I will answer it :-) but I want to look up a few things first.

@ChristopheStrobbe Unfortunately, taking the time to write a good well-researched answer means you'll most likely miss the HNQ vote wave.

Q: How do these two sentences relate?

kelvinI read this in Word by Word by Kory Stamper; It will become clear to you, in the space between heart beats, why you are having a hard time with this entry: it is because you realise now that you do not in fact actually speak English – that the words you are reading are in some low German dial...

@Bookworm This question has been cross-posted on English Language & Usage (one downvote, one answer) and English Language Learners (one upvote, two answers, one of which has been accepted). Should we keep it here?
Participation in reading challenges has been rather low in recent months. For example, we had no questions in March and May, and only one in June. What do people think of organizing a survey (e.g. on Google Docs or SurveyMonkey) to find out what people like or don't like about reading challenges?
The advantage of a survey on Google Docs or SurveyMonkey is that it can be filled in anonymously.

The free online course William Wordsworth: Poetry, People and Place will be repeated; start date is 2 September 2019. I can highly recommend this course!
