mass of < massive

We have had a mass of headache and the great massive people. This is really a follow-on from the first of those, but that was in a post of googlenonces, and merits its own article, I think. It has evolved well beyond noncity (or nonceness or whatever you call it), in any case.

Sell AE1 has pass away the second week of Sept 2000 from a mass of heart attack in OK after 2 months of being just married.

(Doing nothing but being married seems to bring them on in swarms …)

My aunt was the same way until she died of a mass of heart attack she was 60 years old.

my dad passed away with a mass of heart attack, 6 months after my mom,he was 58 years old,

In June she had surgery for a mass of infection on the colon which resulted in the removal of a section of the colon.

Eventually, a mass of infection was removed from Lucia’s abdomen. She then was transferred to Tampa General Hospital.

Its left eye and ear were eaten away by a mass of infection caused by ticks.

Sum of newly created infestation nests (beetle nests i.e. a mass of infestation with 10 or more infested …

The infestation is considered inert in warframe and weapon form otherwise your ship would be a mass of infestation by now

The masses of infection and infestation are probably more prominently mass-like than large (massive). (“Your ship would be one large infestation?” Maybe.)

That this mass of demonstration was not mentioned in the mainstream media is a coninueous cowardice and unpatriotic.

Most masses of celebration are liturgical, but not all:

CHINA HAS HELD A MASS OF CELEBRATION, MARK IN THE 60 ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDING … [with a picture of the celebration, in a huge stadium, with nothing particularly Catholic-looking about it]
