statussake means something like namesake only related to my current status rather than my name. Obviously.

I was thinking more along the lines of 'for the sake of her status.'

Also, thanks to you people, the word "indeed" has either lost all meaning or gained too much. A prof wrote "indeed" on one of my papers, I had no idea what to think...

I'm up to five meanings and counting. There may even be a gradient or two at work: length of pause between syllables and length of final syllable.

I guess I should clarify; most of the meaning differences arise from tone and length of syllable.

You gotta admire the guy who put that thing together. Or pity him for not having a social life. Either one.
