I remembered "Enemy of Beowulf" because my Lit. teacher made us analyze the one line, "Grendel came greedily loping" over and over again, so it's been stuck in my head ever since then! >.

Mothering Sunday for Mother's Day, or are they 2 different things in the US?
+1
Level 67
Jan 16, 2018
Looking it up (because I'd never heard of it), the US doesn't have Mothering Sunday. It's a religious holiday that takes place on the third Sunday in Lent, while the US Mother's Day is a secular holiday on the second Sunday in May.

Well actually, assuming roleybob is from the UK, he's right: In the UK (and Ireland, I think?), while Mothering Sunday's date is calculated off the lunar calendar as described, it is exactly analogous to Mother's Day in the US, and therefore (IMHO, that is ;-) should be accepted.

I am indeed from the UK - I've been led to believe that it started off as Mothering Sunday which was a religious holiday during which Christians were supposed to visit their mother church (not sure how this differs from their normal church), and was later appropriated as a way for gift card shops to make more money (still on the same date)

It does say 'in the US', where I believe it's never known as Mothering Sunday, so I don't really see why it should be allowed.

Given how many times a singular answer is a type-in for a plural answer, I'm surprised - and gutted - that 'dragon' wasn't accepted.

To be precise, she's Daenerys of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Lady Regent of the Seven Kingdoms, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons

In Ireland and I think the UK, we'd call those kind of apartments, Granny flats. I can see how it got called mother-in-law in the USA but it would never have occurred to me to guess that. I was trying various versions of shed, shack, flat, home etc.

Yeah, granny flat in the UK too. That answer threw me for a minute or two. It was the only one I missed and it took a bit of thinking, upon seeing the answer, to figure it out.

I never heard of a mother-in-law suite until now. The concept is okay, but I hate the name. While the extra resident could be the “mother-in-law” of one spouse, that would mean that she is just “mother” to the other spouse. I think that is should be called “Annoying Extended Family Member Suite” instead.

I'd agree with that, no reason for a flat to have the name mother in law, when that clearly refers to a person. Its a granny annexe here in the UK and that's fine as it says what it does (although not always for a granny I accept)

See, that’s much better. If granny does move in, then she’s at least a granny to all the kids living there.

Where my husband grew up in Arkansas the same type dwelling was called a weaning or weaner house for a newlywed couple, then in later years it could serve as a residence for any older relative who needed looking after. Since wives usually outlive their husbands, I'm guessing that is why they eventually came to be called mother-in-law apartments. It seems similar to me to the concept of dower houses on British estates.

im pretty sure its called a convent not a nunnery
+1
Level 75
May 11, 2020
Interchangeable. Nunnery was probably the vulgar use originally. Also, Convent is not exclusive to nuns, it can be a place for priests, monks, nuns, friars, etc... So Nunnery here is more specific and appropriate for the question.

I tried reverend mother but I think that is the form of address rather than the title.
