Topic: Adjective order

Hello,

On https://www.englishclub.com/grammar/adjectives-order.htm
they say : "The "normal" order for fact adjectives is size, shape, age, colour / origin / material / purpose".

Topic: Which. Is it correct the definition?
Posted: Wednesday, February 25, 2015 9:31:23 AM
MacMillan dictionary : "Which is used for asking for a specific choice from a limited number of possibilities".

But the word "selection" is correct, too.

You can also say : "There is nothing better than loving oneself".

Both sentences are perfect to convey the intended meaning.

Topic: Dream of / Dream about
Posted: Friday, December 26, 2014 6:07:53 AM
"Dream of" is usually a preface to a statement which reflects something that someone hopes for, that they aspire to be, or that is a goal of theirs.
"Dream about" denotes something which someone had a dream about, a series of mental images or scenes that one experiences while they're sleeping.
