Hello respected teachers,

Which of the following is better English?


We began to extend the railway track and lay it among more interesting landscape by planting trees, which in turn attracted more wildlife, and by making cuttings through the rock.

Hello respected teachers,

What's the difference between the following two?

Hello respected teachers,

What's your understanding of "acquire" in the following?

Well, during the 1970s, my wife, Liz and I had just acquired 80 acres of sheep farming land, and we decided to settle down and have children.

My dictionary has it meaning as either "buy" or "to be given" something. But is it really that ambiguous in the given context?

Hello respected teachers,

Does "older" modify "style" in the following sentence?

It's an older style house with Greek paintings in every room, and a balcony outside.

Seriously. This is a four-page thread now. Page three consists of 35 posts and over 20 of those are you two, D00M and Helenej, going back and forth, throwing insults at one another.

Could you two please continue your not-so-civil discussion in PMs to one another? It's obviously not a conversation that needs to involve anyone else on the forum. And it certainly has nothing to do with grammar at this point.


Sorry for the inconvenience, Lotje.

Those boring nonsense.

Be creative. I was having fun.

I triple the doSe of
the pesticide if it does you good, psycho.

Have you finished high school, Dr. "doze"?


Read the following, and maybe you get more pissed off helping your ill mind to pour out.

"By now it is evident to everyone you are a crazed psycho who doesn't understand what she says herself or what others articulate; as Lotje put it: Confusion! You still don't know how to use "should" correctly, as DragonSpeaker proved. As you didn't make sense of what Bob said with his good will; as Hope123 pointed out; the list goes on!

Go and learn the correct usage of the English lexicon and then you might be qualified to discuss with or given answer.

May God help you.
You really need that."


Or even you can open another open-letter thread, Dr rat!

Two doctors! Applause Now you can serve the whole forum.

You do deserve being thought of and played with like a rat, psycho, indeed!

By the way, tell him, alongside with treating, to teach you the lexicon of the English language and proper communication.

Or should Drago come here and teach you the correct usage of words?

Oh, "let's keep it SIMPLE," understandable for stupid psychos.

Confusion.
Loose sentences.
Should Drago come here and teach you the correct usage of words?
Boo hoo!

I care about you more than your husband.
Probably his lack of affection has made a poor psycho out of you. I will help you then, don't worry. I will think about you for 1600 days, even more if needed.

Recently you prescribed memory supplements for teachers. Now other drugs, Dr Rat. Your familiarity with such stuff is indicative of your painful experience as a psycho.

You are not worth of thinking, psycho. Confusion is confusion! As drago said, you mean something but write something else. Is such stupid and uncivil psycho worth of anything but being played with like a rat?
