comment What's the point of maintaining a CV after tenure?
Two invalid assumptions: (1) CVs are used only to search for jobs (2) You will never search for a job again.

comment Does being a strong free market supporter correlate with rejection of scientific claims?
We have only certain science here. Right-wingers are more likely to reject anthropogenic climate change. As noted elsewhere, there is also some established science that left-wingers are more likely to reject.

@PatrickStevens ... Still, we need a proof of that fact.

comment Word to describe someone who goes to all the events in town!
I like it. But my dictionary says "FOMO" is actually the fear of missing out, not the person who suffers from this fear. So we don't say "She is a FOMO," but rather "She has FOMO."

comment "If a son strike his father" - shouldn't it be "strikes"?
I wonder how many questions like this there are in this forum... "Is this wrong?" ... "No, it is correct, it is subjunctive."

Do not come here and ask us to do your homework for you. The site is not for "opinion" or "discussion" questions. But if you avoid these pitfalls, you will be fine.

comment Why do you write "occurred" but "listened"?
If there were two different verbs, listen and listene, then indeed the past of listen would probably be listenned to distinguish it from listened which would be the past of listene. But, since we have no verb listene, there is no reason to double this n.

comment "hugest" grammatically correct?
Did you understand what it means? If so, it is a "real word".

comment How do "you" pronounce eczema?
I (in the US) agree with your Merriam-Webster. I learned this word as a child from a TV commercial about such horrors as "eczema, seborrhea, psoriasis". I didn't know what they were, but they were fun to say.

comment Analytic continuation of a real function
@JohnFernley ... That is the "identity theorem" mentioned before. If two analytic funtions defined on a connected domain agree on a set with a limit point (for example, the real line is such a set), then they agree on the whole domain.
