Topic: Making something out of nothing?

Synthesis of de novo genes can be an evolutionary development. There may arise the need of addition of another chapter in Lamarck's "Theory of Inheritance of Acquired Characters", because there are arguments for and against it.

One of the many theories...existing or futuristic.

BTW "Make-a-dick-god-ee" makes sense vis-a-vis appearing in this world.

It means allergy caused by histamines cannot be permanently cured.

In India eating of raw onions, in many cases, is considered to be the cause of nasal mucous.

Don’t be lackadaisical or lollygag along! Learn new words so you don’t talk poppycock. Maybe next time you meet a whippersnapper you can flummox them with words! There’s no need to feel discombobulated if you hear gibberish and gobbledegook, and don’t be woebegone – learning new words can be easy once you start!


So start now.

How did "shopping mall" come about when "mall" has the same meaning?

Thanks.


Mall has other meanings than just an area of shops.

https://www.thefreedictionary.com/mall

Quote:


1. a large retail complex containing stores and restaurants in adjacent buildings or in a single large building.
2. an urban street lined with shops and closed off to motor vehicles.
3. a large area with shade trees used as a public walk or promenade.
4. a strip of land separating two roadways.
5. pall-mall.


The term "shopping mall" let's a person know which type of mall is referred to.

I agree.
