    Question vice versa?

    hi there,
    i have some question here,
    the other day i was writing a journal about how teachers apply different rules to students depending what mood they're in at the moment, and i was saying "teachers may find a trivial mistake of students very reprimandable or some unacceptable mischief simply nothing" but i was wondering if i can delete the phrase starting from "or" and say "and vice versa".
    can you explain this please?
    thanks always, and have a good one.

    Re: vice versa?

    Here are a few examples from the British National Corpus:
    1 I think dancers can teach actors a lot and vice versa.
    2 protestant and catholic, with the catholic population drifting westwards and vice versa.
    3 More commuters actually go from London to Reading to work than vice versa.

    Can you see a difference between them and your sentence?
