    Hello,

    I was reading an article in Wikipedia and found that some parts of it seem ungrammatical. I have corrected those parts but I'm not sure about my corrections. would you please express your opinions toward the original text and my corrections?


    He then played roles of ACP Arvind Mathur who battles battles against his inner demons in Shaitan, the tinnitus affected DJ from Soundtrack the DJ affected by tinnitus in Soundtrack and also played Vivaan Agasthi in the 2013 thriller, Table No. 21.
    Thank you in advance,

    Would you please tell me why "the DJ affected by tinnitus" is wrong?

    You mentioned that "tinnitus-affected DJ" is correct. I googled 'tinnitus-affected' and found no result! I could not perceive why your form is correct.

    I Googled "tinnitus-affected" and found:

    Is the 'also played' part necessary?

    When he did not accept my correction in this case, it means that he believed my correction was wrong.

    But another interpretation which I made from your post is that both forms [ "the DJ affected by tinnitus" and "tinnitus-affected DJ"] are correct but they have got differences in their meanings. Yes?

    I'm afraid I don't possess your mind-reading skills, so I can't comment on that.

    You are trying to mind-read again. I think both forms are correct, but I do not think they have different meanings.

    I think 'played' can be omitted.
