I have written an article and want to present it to my friends if I say:It's touchable and pretty nice, don't miss it up.Is touchable, correct or I should use touching instead.
I mean is it correct to use it here or I should use touching instead.
1.It is touchable and pretty nice; don't miss it up.
2.It is touchable and pretty nice; don't miss it up.
Which one is correct?
Take another look at your last post, in which there is precisely zero difference between 1 and 2, and think again about Raymott's question. What meaning are you trying to impart?
Okay, I'm going to have a try in spite of the question's lack of clarity.
Touchable means that something can be touched in the physical sense of extending one's hand and touching it. If something is not touchable, it is out of reach.
Touching, on the other hand, often has an emotional meaning. Something that is touching evokes an emotional reaction in you. It tugs on the strings of your heart.
BTW "miss it up" is wrong. You mean "mess it up".
It would be up to the readers, not the writer, to find it touching.
Do you mean "It's OK to touch it, but don't mess it up"'?
This would tell them that they are allowed to touch the piece of paper with their hands but they must be careful.
