Hi,teachers and anyone else willing to help me.
Please tell me whether I can shorten "a society full of ruthless competition" to simply "a society of ruthless competition"? Much of the time, I hate myself for lack of that good feel for the English language. Every day I read English and watch CNN or abcNews, but still I fail to achieve a high level of English proficiency. How desperate I am now to develop at least part of the linguistic intuition native speakers of English have.
But, to my ear, 'a society of ruthless competiton' is a society characterized by ruthless competition. It sounds to me a bit more hopeless than 'a society full of ruthless competition'.
Thanks for your encouragement again.
