    Syntax

    Can you please confirm the following sentence is correctly constructed ? If not what would be the proper way to express the idea:

    "The winds and waves have less impact on the Iceberg than the undercurrents do. "

    It's OK with the lower case "i".

    Re: Syntax

    It's correctly constructed, but there's no need to capitalise 'iceberg'. You could omit 'the' before 'winds' and 'undercurrents'.

    Please note that 'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed' (Posting Guidelines).

    'The winds and waves...' would have been good for this.
