    Re: orthographic sentence

    Orthography is the accepted way of spelling and writing words. Accordingly an orthographic sentence is one with correct spelling.

    Re: orthographic sentence

    then orthographic sentences are grammatical, thus it can consist of 1 or more clauses that can be in coordination or as separate uncoordinated (not even implied) sentences.
    that's what i understood. is it correct?

    Re: orthographic sentence

    What I do know:
    Spelling applies to words, not sentences. Just because there are not spelling errors that does not mean there are no grammar errors.
    What I do not know:
    I do not know what an orthographic sentence is.

    Re: orthographic sentence

    i found this in a book could anyone explain it to me: "orthographic sentences are not necessarily the same as grammatical sentences which are identified with cluster of clauses (minimally one) that are interrelated by coordinatio or subordination"
    if they are not the same (or may not be) what are the differences then? and how would you compromise it with what is written auos and angelika??

    Re: orthographic sentence

    Orthography is correct spelling. You can easily have a sentence that is correctly spelled but with incorrect grammar.
