Take a look at this thread faryan: audience
the biophysicist's lecture on molecular dynamics was too obnoxious for many students in the audience.
the word "audience" seems almost always doubtful to me.
1.is it singlar or plural?
2.can u give me a list of more applicable prepositional collocations?
Please capitalise the first word of every sentence and take the trouble to type you rather than u.
Obnoxious is an inappropriate adjective for a lecture on molecular dynamics.
1. Audience is singular if you think of it as an entity and plural if it's considered to be a collection of individuals. In your sentence it's the latter.
2. Pass. I don't understand the question.
Perhaps you have problems with "in the audience" in the sentence you quote. I thimk it is also possible to say "among the audience" for that sentence.
Thanks of remembering me the first two mistakes I made, and answering my questions,_in the second question I need to know a little more about the propositions that are used before or after the word "audience"._But the most common ones.We never use spaces before commas and periods and we always use spaces after them. So:
questions, in <-- correct
questions,in <-- incorrect
questions ,in <-- incorrect
questions , in <-- incorrect
Thanka a lot.
