    Default Argument over sentence

    Wonder if anybody could tell me if the following sentence, is correct and makes sense.

    My sentence: No where else on this planet will you feel so at home

    Other person put it as: No where else on this planet, Where you will feel so at home

    second other person: No where else on this planet will make you feel so at home

    I just know mine looks correct.

    which one is correct?

    Nowhere (not no where) else on this planet will make you feel so at home

    I think the third sentence doesn't sound right. I think it should be:

    No other place on this planet will make you feel so at home.

    Otherwise it means that there IS NOT a place on this planet at all that would make you feel at home. It doesn't matter where you live, you just won't feel at home.

    The more I think of all that, the more confused I get. I think I got it right.

    Thank you ever so much Natalie, so apart from the space between "no" and "where" you would say the top line would be correct? :D

    Go ahead. I don't see anything wrong with that sentence.
    Besides, I wouldn't pick on you even if there was a mistake. What's in your signature is YOUR business as far as I am concerned :)
    Come to think of it, someone might do it on purpose and that could be just your genuine signature ... this way you can get everyone else going...wrrrrr :mad: :mad: :mad:

    If the speaker really believes there is no other place where the listener will feel at home, then he/she just might be inclined to use "would" instead of "will".

    Where else on this planet would you feel so at home?

    I think "could" works well here too.

    Where else on this planet could you feel so at home?

    Where else on this planet could you possibly feel so at home?

    Both 1) and 3) are OK. My choice is 1), though. It's poetic. :wink:

    2) is ungrammatical: It should be,

    "There is nowhere else on this planet where you will feel at home", without the comma (,).

    3) is OK, but is carries a slightly different meaning than 1):

    3) Nowhere else on this planet will make you feel at home. (causative)
    1) Nowhere else on this planet will you feel at home. (assertion)

    All the best, :D

    Although I'm starting to think twice about friendly members, there are a few that really have it in for me, and telling so many lies, but what they dont know is, Admin keeps a record, and at the end of the day, they are stuffed. but hey enough of that, wrong forum to discuss problems :D
