    Hello all users!

    Does "It is permissible/admissible for you to sleep here" mean the same as "You may sleep here" and "You are allowed/permitted to sleep here"?

    I think so. In my opinion, the permissible/admissible structure with infinitive (plus for noun/pronoun) is very rare.

    What do you think?

    Thank you.

    Re: Hello all users!

    I agree with you.

    I have changed your thread title.
