    I am not worthy of her.

    "I know I am not worthy of her, I know it's impossible to speak of it now."

    Could you please tell what this means?

    Re: I am not worthy of her.

    Where did you see this sentence, which is a comma splice?

    Re: I am not worthy of her.

    I haven't time at present to discuss I, am, not, of or her. For worthy, you might begin with this definition: http://www.macmillandictionary.com/d...rican/worthy_1

It is easy for you because you are native speaker and you guys must be wondering that it is a very tiny thing to understand but for a non native speaker sometimes it becomes very confusing. It must be very frantic for you because its not a big thing but I am confused so I want to appologise. Sorry guys.

    This non-native speaker finds the following explanation about proper nouns helpful.

    Re: I am not worthy of her.

    The use of an article has little to do with whether a noun is a common noun or a proper noun.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
