    Arrow Reading and writing disibility

    I have a reading and writing disibility. I do not understand verbs, nouns and syntax. I try to stay withing the boundaries of sentence structure. But with this disibility I am mostly misunderstood. What disturbs me more is when the reader interprets what they thought I meant in a sentence. If that is the case, why do we have a editor? I do the best I can and would ask why the reader exspects perfect understanding? I edit each word for meaning and understanding within the sentence.

    I try to keep the sentences short and to the point, too keep the reader from interpreting what they thought I meant. Also please crituque this e-mail where I can hopefully try to understand why readers do this. pljames

    P.S. I couldn't edit this e-mail

    Re: Reading and writing disibility

    No matter how many times you post about this idea, the answers you get will not change. A reader will naturally interpret meaning. And of course you want your reader to try to understand what you meant. Would be you happier if a reader did his best to find an interpretation you did not intend at all?

    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.

    Re: Reading and writing disibility

    This is the fourth or fifth time you have posted about the same thing. As Barb said, our answer isn't going to change. I am going to close this thread. If an admin disagrees, please reopen it.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
