    respectively

    You can draw a parallel between the syntactic stati of 'home' and 'swimming' in the first and second sentence, respectively.

    Where would you put 'respectively,' Frank?

    Re: respectively

    I guess I would have it modifying "draw", but who the hell would write such a sentence anyway? I have no idea what the writer is saying.

    I liked "stati" -- a little bit of Latin scholarship showing.
