    My way of understanding grammar and syntax.

    Adverb noun verb proposition noun=the cat sat on the mat. I cannot understand these grammar words and I use sentence words that I can understand that make sense to me. I sense those of you who are educated members are not acquainted with how to make oneself noticed especially when writing. I have a handicap I cannot understand grammar. I use the sentence words to create a sentence to over take grammar that I cannot understand. It seems the members disagree with it as I thought.

    I have no argument except the way I write. I write as I speak the words and understand them and they are already in my mind and memory. I understand where all of you are coming from, but you cannot understand where I am coming from. I do not wish to change writing in English except what I believe is overcoming a handicap to me. If you wish I will unsubscribe, I understand what I am trying to say, but all of you do not. I thank you for your patience with me. God bless all of you.

    If any one wishes to write me I am at pauljames@brmemc.net

    I see no reason for you to unsubscribe. You have not offended anyone. I, for one, have a difficult time understanding what is bothering you. I don't know any native speaker that worries about "adverb-noun-verb-preposition-noun" when they write or speak. We just write or speak.

    Many or most native speakers are not very familiar with grammar terms. You don't need to now them to learn a first language.

    If you wish I will unsubscribe
    I'l second Mike on that.
