    Would you be kind enough to turn your attention to the following sentences?

    This sounds like a very strict, or exasperated teacher, talking to her students!

    Grammar is one thing - choosing the right, grammatically correct expressions apropos your audience...



    1.He shows no regard for the feelings of others.

    4.In With regard to your request, no decision has been made (as yet).

    8.The little boy was an object of special regard.
    Grammatically correct...but who would utter such an expression?

    9.He acts without regard to for the impending danger.

    14.I do not regard his opinion.
    I have no regard for his opinion.

    15.In the last time he was much regarded.
    Last time he was here, he was held in high regard.
    He used to be held in such high regard professionally, but now, ever since he was convicted of domestic violence...well...people look at him differently now.

    16.His rights were strictly regarded.
    His rights were respected.

    17.As regards his suggestion, I was non-committal.

    18.I have to entertain suspicious suspicions regarding you.

    19.Would you be kind enough to tell me what are your intentions your intentions are regarding her?

    20.There are many different chiep cheap and regardless things.

    21.We must to do it, regardless of whether we want it to or not.

    Vil - you are in danger of being oh so grammatically correct, but people will wonder (from how you phrase sentences), what planet you come from. Try to note in your reading how native speakers phrase what they say and write.
