    Advertisement tagline

    Hi, my advertising designer has created this tagline... it sounds correct when i read it the first time. However, the more i read the sentence, it sounded incorrect..LOL. Can anyone please check for me is this tagline correct without 'be' ? "Let your child's creativity inspired."

    thanks,
    pkb

    No, it needs the 'be': Let your child's creativity be inspired

    Re: Advertisement tagline

    Depending on what you do, "be inspired" might not be right, in any case. Perhaps "flourish" is what you're really looking for.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
