    Re: kinds of OR kind of

    It is impossible to answer your question without a full sentence to consider. Please write some example sentences for us.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: kinds of OR kind of

    This is the sentence.

    I think that they are not useful for every kind of text.
    They are useful only for certain kinds of texts or expressions.
