    Default post a posting

    Hello,
    please tell me about this.

    This is about posting on the Internet discussion board.
    Do you say "post a posting" or do you use other verbs or nouns?
    For example,
    "I read it in the posting just after she posted it."

    I think that ENLs have a tendency to avoid repeating the same word [post] in such close proximity, PD.

    post a new thread // write a new post // post a reply

    "I read it in the thread[posting] just after she posted it."

    Thank you for the quick reply, riverkid!
    What does ENLs stand for?

    My dictionaries have only "Eldorado Nuclear Limited" and "erythema nodosum leprosum".
    "English as a Native Language" doesn't seem the case, either.

    It's the last one, PD.

    "English as a Native Language" speakers.

    Oh, I see!
    I didn't notice "speakers" come after ENL, and was wondering why there is "s" while "English" is singular.

    Thank you again, riverkid!

    Hi, riverkid.

    Just to make sure of a tiny thing, there are a few expressions such as:

    1. He lives a good/happy/dog and cat's life.

    2. I dreamed a sweet/horrible dream.

    And I don't feel odd when I come across:

    3. He posted a nice/bad post.

    What is your prized opinion?
