high or tall?

Would you use "high" or "tall" in the following?
The bottle is seven inches high/tall.
I'd appreciate your help.
"High" is an adjective used to talk about distance above the ground. "Tall" is an adjective that means "above average height" or "with a notably high dimension."
U're not comparing anything in that sentence so you just can use "high".

Do they provide an explanation like Sarries's? Dictionaries just confuse us with those thousand definitions for each word

Why is the comma necessary?

Commas are arguably the most important grammatical tool the English language has to offer. They splice a sentence, providing cohesion and unity. Commas also allow the reader to understand the proper connotation of a writer's words. That's a lot of heavy lifting for little scoop-shaped squiggles, isn't it?

The meaning of 'compromise' according to dictionaries is 'to reduce in quality, value or degree', how can this meaning be related to below that is 'come(together)'+'promise'?
early 15c., "a joint promise to abide by an arbiter's decision," from Old French compromis (13c.), from Late Latin compromissus, past participle of compromittere "to make a mutual promise" (to abide by the arbiter's decision), from com "with, together" (see com-) + promittere "to send forth; let go; foretell; assure beforehand, promise," from pro "before" (from PIE root *per- (1) "forward," hence "in front of, before") + mittere "to release, let go; send, throw" (see mission).
Well explained 👍🏻👍🏻
