    Re: Correction of a text

    from: http://www.usingenglish.com/reference/idioms/

    The following is an idiom I think might have some spelling mistakes? Maybe the words "they" should all be changed to "he" as regard to the word "someone"?
    A fool at 40 is a fool forever
    If someone hasn't matured by the time they reach forty, they never will.

    Or, maybe I'm wrong, but it's my first time to encounter such sentence pattern: the subject of conditional subordinate clause is "someone" while the subject and the object of the sentence are "they" and "them" respectively.

    A little bird told me
    If someone doesn't want to say where they got some information from, they can say that a little bird told them.
