    ook at the heightened injustice

    Hi,

    Is "O' look at the heightened injustice of the time/age" correct?

    Re: ook at the heightened injustice

    I don't know what "O' look" means. Where did you find this sentence? I have never seen a capital "O" followed by an apostrophe as a word before.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I just tried to translate this sentence from a poem. If I omit ''O'', does it make sense?

    ''Look at the risen atrocity of the age!''.

    In a poem "O look..." is OK.

    Was the apostrophe after the "O" a typo?

    Why did you change "heightened" to "risen"?

    It wasn't a typo but I have noted my mistake.

    As an exclamation, it's spelt Oh.

    Re: ook at the heightened injustice

    In poetry and prayers (and other things), you might see "O" rather than "Oh" but it doesn't work in standard everyday English.

    Re: ook at the heightened injustice

    Is my sentence correct without the apostrophe?
