    Question To much?

    I actualy saw this twice that two people writing this in internet before, but I insisted myself to not get annoyed to look it up
    I thought it was only typo..

    And then I met again with the words here: https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/a...-headline.html
    Rocky's context:
    I usually see the infinitive as you mentioned. I think the use of "will" in that heading is to emphasize the certainty of his return.

    I haven't followed that story, but I'm guessing that over the previous few days or weeks, there has been debate over whether he would return. So the current headline uses "will" to show that he definitely will return, despite whatever reservations he had.

    For headline writing, you could try searching around online. I quickly checked the Associated Press Stylebook, but didn't see to much about headlines (the guide has just a small bit of info about capitalization and punctuation). So I'd look elsewhere.



    They are really real words . What is its meaning?
    I have searched it up with different keywords, but no satisfying results..
    And I just discovered that there is still no similar thread in the forum too.

    Because this site is free-membership with educational purposes (I guess?), my gratitude is none other than the highest level of Thank You!

    Re: To much?

    It's just another typo. It should be "too much".

    Re: To much?

    In some cases it is a typo. In many, it is simply that people do not know the difference between the words "to" and "too" (and often "two).

    Emsr2d2 is a greatly respected female teacher, and while your thanks are appreciated, you don't need to send them in a separate post.

    Re: To much?

    Why have you assumed your responders are both gentlemen?

    I dont want to give you the answer as people are likely not be allowed to have any assumption, especially false one at first guess, around here.


    And to maintain each other's respect, is there one policy stating that we are encouraged to click "like" to say our gratitude rather than saying thank you clearly ? Or stating that giving thank you in separate sentence is worse culture than clicking "like" ?

    I am proposing to be allowed to say 'thank you', please .

    Correction: Thank you Miss/Mrs Emsr2d2 and unknown SoothingDave. :)

    AppleRome, neither Miss nor Mrs is required (and nor is Ms). It's perfectly fine to simply refer to people by their usernames. Gender is irrelevant on the forum.

    The reason that we ask that you don't add an extra post simply to say "Thank you" is that it will show up on the main screen as a new post and, whilst appreciation is nice, it's sometimes disappointing to click through to a new post thinking that it will be another question or some additional information to the answer, only to find that it is just a Thank You from the OP. It saves time for you and for us if you simply click the Like button.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
