- For Teachers
In this sentence, are we supposed to use "that" or "it", please? :
" Some people like killing animals. I really find it strange. "
And unfortunate readers (of writers who think abstraction makes them look clever despite the impaired communication that results) may see the 'it' expanded into a noun phrase:
I find some people's enjoyment of killing animals strange.
This is heinous* 'writing' in my view, but stuff like that happens.
PS Apologies for the hyperbole () - I just feel quite strongly about this sort of thing. I might have said 'execrable' or 'lamentable' or 'atrocious' or 'grievous' or ,,, Do I make myself clear?
