Topic: Is "same" correctly used?
Posted: Sunday, April 23, 2017 6:24:05 AM
IMO. 'same' has been correctly used.

In the first sentence, I feel, the word 'about' is not needed.

Topic: Are the writers using the wrong verb, garner?
Posted: Sunday, April 23, 2017 6:13:31 AM
These days, English speakers are most likely to call it a granary, but there was a time when the noun garner was also a likely candidate. That noun, which can also mean "something that is collected," dates from the 12th century. The verb garner joined the language two centuries later. The verb was once commonly used with the meaning "to gather into a granary," but today it usually means "to earn" or "to accumulate.

Middle English (Scots), from Middle English gerner, garner granary, from Anglo-French gerner, grenier, from Latin granarium, from granum grain — more at corn
-Merriam Webster



accrue, accumulate, agglomerate, aggregate, amass, collect, cumulate, gather, hive, pile up, roll up-TFD

This is a hypothetical question. Time never stops.The moment, the time stopped there will be the catastrophe.

I request TFD to intervene since native and non-native speakers differ.

Thank you, DragO sir!

You have explained the 'time' very accurately and beautifully.

I only hoped for (expected) a great explanation.

Let's not get distracted from the main topic, please.

Isn't it better to stay away if one doesn't know the response to the query than to spend the energy on some other unnecessary and useless discussion?

Is 'time' a thing and hence a noun? I expect complete justification with reference to various dictionaries.

Please tell me why it shouldn't be;

Since the word 'time' is a noun,
Why did the time stop?
