Hello, I would like to know up to what extent this expressions are correct.
- He perched Son on the top railing.
- Lily put her arm around Husband's shoulders.
Instead of saying "his son" or "her husband's", the writer capitalize the person and omits the possessive pronoun. Is that an old fashion way of talking?
Thank you !
I have no idea. Someone at Cambridge I imagine.
