I love analyzing my native language, American English, and helping non-native speakers make sense of it. I've been doing this for fun with friends who speak English as a second language for nearly 30 years. I would like to first thank A.D., C.F. and E.A., and now P.G., for inspiring me to finally write this stuff down!

If you are 'stuffed up,' it means your nose is clogged with mucus and you can't breathe very well.
-Are you feeling any better today?
-No, not really. I'm still completely stuffed up.
