    A Strange sentence

    Hi,
    what does the sentence put below mean:
    "A separate inquiry will beheld(...)".
    The Problem is that I dont understand the "beheld" word.

    Re: A Strange sentence

    A separate inquiry will be held

    Does it make sense now?

    Thanks it is clear.
    And maybe one more:
    "it was clear to forensic scientists that (...)." I don't get it about the forensic scientists as I got an information that the forensic word is a noun here. :/

    Re: A Strange sentence

    Oeps!!

    It means "observed" or "noticed" or "examined"

    "Beheld" is the past participel of "behold"

    Now the meaning of the sentence isn't clear for me either

    Re: A Strange sentence

    Forensic science (often shortened to forensics) is the application of a broad spectrum of sciences to answer questions of interest to the legal system. This may be in relation to a crime or to a civil action. The use of the term "forensics" in place of "forensic science" could be considered incorrect; the term "forensic" is effectively a synonym for "legal" or "related to courts" (from Latin, it means "before the forum"). However, it is now so closely associated with the scientific field that many dictionaries include the meaning given here.

    Re: A Strange sentence

    I'm really curious what that sentence means.
    Fortunately we have good teachers here.
