    Ran on a treadmill at the sweatshop during gait analysis today

    Hello,

    My first post! Just curious...

    Ran on a treadmill at the sweatshop during gait analysis today

    or

    Ran on a treadmill at the sweatshop today during gait analysis

    or

    Ran on a treadmill today at the sweatshop during gait analysis


    Also, what about using a comma?

    Thanks. :)

    Any one of the three and forget the comma. It adds nothing to ubderstanding.

    Welcome to Using English.

    As you have an eye for detail, you'll be aware that what you have written are not complete sentences but Facebook entries, tweets or blog chat.

    Forget about commas — it's more important to put full stops at the end.

    Does "sweatshop" mean something different in BrE?

    No - it means the same.

    I have no idea what the original sentence means. I had never heard of gait analysis, and cannot imagine why it would be carried out in a sweatshop.
