theorthoepist commented on the word lambaste
"Although both spellings are well attested, lambaste is truer to the putative etymology (lam "to beat" + baste "to thrash") and, in any event, vastly predominates." Garner's Modern American Usage, by Bryan A. Garner (2003).

theorthoepist commented on the user Prolagus
You placed "qroqqa" in my pronunciation request line. Because it's not English it's out of my ken. Perhaps you should ask the Wordnik user who goes by that name, who says that it's a Maltese word. -- chelster, The Orthoepist
