    Dear friends,

    i wish to know what exactly means 'to get left and right muddled'. This is from a text on statuary art. The sentence goes: Why do artists seem to get left and right 'muddled'?
    Please help! Thanks.

    Re: LEFT AND RIGHT MUDDLED

    or shoud i read it just 'muddled'? in the sense of confused.

    Without paying any attention on the left and right, which only muddles!

    Re: LEFT AND RIGHT MUDDLED

    It means '. . .get left and right mixed up' or, as you suggested - 'confused'.

    Please capitalise I and the first word of every sentence.

    Re: LEFT AND RIGHT MUDDLED

    Thank you Rover,

    so, you suggest that this means what literaly says, and nothing beyond that? You must be right. It seem the ideas in the text are not expressed in a fortunate way.

    PS: Thanks for your observation. I agree with you since this is a site dedicated to learning and improving our language skills we all should attempt to write it correctly. Thanks again!
