While that is true, I disagree on this particular calamity (flood). Not sure about Chennai, but Mumbai floods (in 2005) were less due to the actual rainfall we had but more due to the drainage system's shortcomings and unplanned development. I am sure the same amount of rain in any "planned" city wouldn't have been as severe as it was in Mumbai.
-- EDIT Cite[^] - granted these are aggravating factors, but they worsened the situation to a much greater extent than the actual rainfall.
Make some Spelling or Grammatical mistake and Nish will be here
I would like to be a Grammar-cop, too.
And I believe you are referring to this guy[^]. I see that he lives in the USA, so does he also correct the "proper" spellings to the "wrong"* ones? How many spellings would he correct for the following sentence:
"The Councillor of the Centre authorised the purchase of aluminium discs for grey coloured aeroplane."
He have bigger contribution in many other parts of CP too
Yes, I know. He is a legendary contributor here and I won't dare say anything that's inappropriate about him. I was simply differentiating the North American/US English with the British/Australian/Indian/"Rest of the World" English.
you are always welcome
Thanks! A couple of corrections w.r.t. that statement, though:
- the first letter of "you" should be capitalised (sentence case)
- it should end with a period/full stop ('.')
p.s. I hope I won't be too much annoying if I continue to do so.
No not at all I hope you wont get annoyed for while correcting us
No, I won't. That has always been my habit.
Now, for this sentence from you:
- there should be a comma (',') after "No"
- there should either be a period ('.') or an exclamation mark ('!') after "not at all"
- there should be an apostrophe (''') in "wont"
- there should either be "for" or "while", but not both at the same time
- there should be a period ('.') after "us"
So, finally that sentence should be:
No, not at all. I hope you won't get annoyed for/while correcting us.
