I can understand over turned but all the local TV stations catch on fire
from the others. For years it was "the vehicle turned over". Some one
fresh out of college introduces "over turned" and mentions it a time or two
and then all the other new stations use the new "buzz" word.
A few years back indices replaced indexes. Most went back to indexes.
And yes, the airplane did skid "and" crash. The crash "not a noun" was a
result, not an object.
"unthaw" that's one I've never heard. In my experience, usage of
"discolor" or "discoloration" has a negative connotation while "color"

If you read the 17th century references (do you have Stalker &
Parker?) then the roots of the process are quite obviously connected
to our notions of "staining". Any recipe that begins with taking a few
handfuls of fresh horse dung and squeezing it in a cloth in the hope
that they might produce a permanent colouring on timber is clearly
desperate for any pigment that isn't fugitive, can't produce much than
a faint tint rather than a strong colour, and is probably inspired by
past laundry problems.
