Re: From Communication 101

Well, I am not sure how this would play out in Chinese either, but I suspect it has more tools that tp for handling theses sorts of problems (or can get them in 10,000 years). just note that the "these sort of problems" is a direct consequence of english (chinese) as a primary language fo...

Re: From Communication 101

Re: From Communication 101

I know that you believe you understand what you think I said but I am not sure you realize that what you think I said was not what I meant. this construction is excessive. e.g. one can just say "I know that you believe you understand what I said " removing "you think", and so on...

Re: Dotsies

This does not seem to be much of a conceptual advance, however, of the sort that bringing in computers, etc., was supposed to bring about.

Re: Change in administrator on the way

Of course, though we cannot yet see what that change might be. but we can Until the electronic (or whatever comes after that) tools are universal, no change is really likely and, electronics is already universal for text writing, while the paper is still used for reading One might think...
