    Default Re: Pls help me with this weird phrase

    Your title didn't make us answer the question any more slowly or quickly than normal. We all work through the questions at our own speed. I'm afraid using a title like that does not pique our interest.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    If you want to use a search engine to find fairly correct English phrases, BNC or COCA corpora might be of interest. Mind you, it needs to be used correctly (you need to take context and suchlike into account). And you need at least a few hits to know for sure that it's correct English. But it has so meany search options, I love it.
