    reviewing a sentence as poor or good English

    If syntactic(al) rules are carefully to account for the formation of the complex sentences, we will solve(overcome, or understand) the mystery of the concept- ambiguity- of the sentence, provided that or on condition semantic rules,as well, skould be taken into account.

    Greetings and A very good evening to you,

    I have just written the sentences. Would you please throw a light on those, so that I get my mistakes or errors.

    Any comment or feed-back would greatly be appreciated

    Please feel free to ask any question to clarify more the specific problems.

    Re: reviewing a sentence as poor or good English

    I'm afraid I can't work out what it's trying to say at all.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You started by saying syntax should be taken into account, so that last "provided that" part is redundant and makes the whole sentence confusing.


    When you say "account for the formation of," what are you trying to say? Understand? Analyze? Explain? The phrase is vague.

    Greetings and a very good evening to you.

    I just wrote that sentence. Would you please throw a light on it, so that I get my mistakes or errors.

    It is better to make your corrections in a new post, rather than going back and editing. It's impossible to follow a thread if posts are edited like this; eg. no one knows what emsr2d2 had trouble with. Also, if your second version makes no sense either, it is sometimes possible to make sense of the two versions put together.
