    Re: prononciation

    The first is correct.

    Please give your threads useful titles. 'Pronunciation of 'Mr'?' would have been good for this.

    Re: prononciation

    I am sorry for the title, I can't find titles for my subjects, even when I write a pragragh or an essay, I find difficulty in the title so I think I just need some time and your precious instructions and hints to improve this.

    Re: prononciation

    It's very simple on this forum. When you ask a question, it is usually about a specific word or phrase. Simply make that word or phrase part of your title. As 5jj said "Pronunciation of Mr" would have been good. It helps us to search for threads which we know exist but perhaps can't remember exactly where they were in the forum. If you post ten different questions, all with the title "Pronunciation" (note the correct spelling), we cannot tell them apart without opening them which takes extra time.

    Check on the definition of "in vain". I don't think it is what you mean. I think you meant "I did not spell "pronunciation" incorrectly on purpose" or something similar.

    Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter and end every sentence with the relevant punctuation mark.

    Re: prononciation

    The Ria, may I very politely ask if English is really your native language, as your profile suggests? I'm not saying it's not possible, but you have written a few sentences such as 'Please,Can I have to know what is the correct meaning for the following sentence,' in this thread that hint at the fact that you're maybe not a native speaker. You also do not always use punctuation and capital letters correctly.

    Note that the native speakers and/or teachers who post on this forum set an example for learners. Please don't take this the wrong way, and if my assessment is wrong, please let me know.

    Re: prononciation

    Being English mother tounge, It isnot.
    I have my education in E.L.S., so I think it is my native language.
    but I am from Egypt and I think my language standard is not very high as yours, So I attended this website to improve it.
    So If you noticed, I made my member type interested in language, as I love and adore English.
    About punctuation, teachers give no importance for them, I grew up ignoring them, And if you noticed also, I try to improve it with every thread I post, And I try to think of better titles to, I take in consideration the hints, notes and instructions you write for me. And try to be better.

    I hope I didn't annoy you with that, and if so, I am very sorry.

    It's not that it's annoying us, but it is inaccurate. Other learners might look at your profile and see your claim that British English is your native language, and they will assume that what you write in English is correct. That is not fair. Please amend your profile to show your true native language.
