    I'm Mary's fan.

    Q: what are the difference between these three?

    1. I'm Mary's fan.

    2. I'm a big fan of Mary.

    3. I'm a big Mary fan.


    Thank you.

    1. I'm Mary's fan. Mary has only one fan—me.

    2. I'm a big fan of Mary. I'm one of Mary's big fans.

    3. I'm a big Mary fan. Same as 2, but could also mean 'I'm a fan of somebody called "big Mary".'

    Your appreciation is welcome but please note that there is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you". Many people will have opened this thread expecting to see a follow-up question or further information, only to find that it simply says "Thank you". Just click on the "Thank" button which appears in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
