    One Line Proofreading

    Is this a grammatically correct sentence? The part I'm mostly not sure of is underlined.
    The fasten seat belts light indicator lights up. We may be experiencing turbulence, promulgates the pilot.


    Oh, and a quick question: is it OK if I post here longer chunks of text for proofreading?

    Thanks

    The fasten seat belt light indicator has lit lights up. We may be experiencing turbulence, promulgates said/announced the pilot.

    Note that some dictionaries accept "seatbelt" as one word.

    Re: One Line Proofreading

    On English-speaking airlines, one of the stewards/stewardesses usually announces "Ladies and gentlemen, the 'Fasten Seat Belts' sign has been switched on so please return to your seats and fasten your seatbelt. The toilets are temporarily out of use". The pilot might also announce "We may experience some turbulence so please return to your seats".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Correct capitalisation and punctuation are required at all times on this forum.

    Please do not use home-made emoticons in place of standard punctuation marks. If you want to insert a smiley, use the icon.

    In any case, there is no need to write a new post just to say "Thank you". It makes us think there is new information or a follow-up question and we spend time opening the thread. Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful. It saves everybody's time.
