    depersonalize Meaning

    I don't understand what exactly depersonalize means. Could somebody explain this? It sometime conflicts with the meaning to the word personalize.

    Incidentally, we BE speakers spell it depersonalise.

    Use only one question mark at a time.

    Re: depersonalize Meaning

    Given that "depersonalise" is the opposite of "personalise", it's only to be expected that it would conflict with it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You need to work on your punctuation. Remember the following:

    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.

    The word "single" is the important one in your case. One full stop or one question mark or one exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That is not a complete sentence. What was the rest of the sentence, where did you find it and who wrote it?

    Yeah, I think i should learn the proper use of punctuation. I would like to thank you for your amazing proposition. But this is forum and we are on a discussion which may doesn't require proper punctuation as its not between an essay writing or an article.
