Fateful Words

There is a younger man who aspires to become a scholar. I could help  him quite a bit to get on his way.  I am not going to help if he asks; I am not going to volunteer. It’s all because of a phrase he wrote: “Similar to John, I did ….”

Does think make sense?

If you don’t see it, ask yourself the following: Is it the same kind of mistake as in : “I should have went..,” or is it a completely different kind  of mistake?

No, Ryan MH, this is not about you but just watch your words.

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

  2. McHenry:Here is an exercise for you and others of your logoreic generation:

    1 “The feline quadruped reclines on a dedicated item of furniture commonly utilized by humans for purposes of relaxation.”

    2 “The cat is on the couch.”

    Which is the best sentence?
