Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

The 3sg -s is also applied to nearly every verb except a choice few. While who/whom is a single word. Who/whom isn't uncommon by any means, but nowhere near as common as 3sg verbs.

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I can answer 2. You use the spoiler2 tags to make that kind of spoiler. One time they're useful is when you're describing a movie, book or some other story that people might not want spoiled to them, but you still want to talk about how it was Colonel Mustard with the candlestick in the ballroom.

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

You may as well ask why English speakers can't use thou/thee correctly. They don't grow up hearing the word forms on a regular basis and so don't get the idea that they pattern similarly to all their other pronouns.

Re: Yay or Nay?

English actually uses "not" as a sarcasm-marking interjection sometimes. It's usually considered juvenile and unsubtle, but no one said sarcasm had to involve great wit. The construction is: "I believe you … not!"
