Re: TO DR SAS


Thank you for your presence.

I made only two suggestions or corrections. My elementary grammar teacher told me that 'both' is used to describe two things in a positive sentence, whilst 'all' is used for three or more.

I maintain that names of subjects are common nouns. Logically, the dictionary enters proper nouns are capitalized words. Checking through my dictionaries including OED, I saw chemistry and not Chemistry.Provide me with references to the contrary if any.

Again, notice that grammar as a 'subject' is one of debate, with several authorities preferring some styles to others. Whilst I respect you as a doctor, do not attempt to claim any authority over grammar especially where logic holds.

In the said article where you claim to rubbish my corrections, you only subjectively refuted 3 out of 8. What about the remaining 5?

Even I disagree with 2.

I am restating one here:

A blind catches a child while its asleep.

Please explain to me how and why 'its' as a possessive pronoun is playing a nominal role here.

Keep reading and correcting!
