The writer clearly intends to mean 'belonging to it', ie the uterus. His use of the apostrophe is wrong, of course. Some very good native English speaking writers get very confused about the use of apostrophes, especially when applied to 'it'.Originally Posted by jack
'Advocated' is the past tense of the verb 'advocate', whereas the writer intends the plural of the noun 'advocate', probably in the sense of "a person who works in support of another". The remark is probably aimed at both parents.Originally Posted by jack
"You need to be advocated for your child" wouldn't actually make much sense.
It's just a sort of shorthand, I think. It's not grammatically right, but the meaning's quite clear. Newspaper headlines usually drop articles too.Originally Posted by jack
