    bit through/fancier word

    Someone bit through his ear until it came off of his head.
    Modality is like a fancier word for "mode".


    Please explain the emboldened parts to me.

    Re: bit through/fancier word

    Someone bit through his ear until it came off of his head. Imagine if you bite into the corner of a samosa until it seperates and a piece is left in your mouth, you have bitten through the samosa.
    Modality is like a fancier word for "mode". More elegant, perhaps unnecessarily so.
