    up with which I will not put

    From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put. ---Winston Churchill

    By this odd sentence, Churchill meant we can end a sentence with a preposition if reasonable. Am I right?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: up with which I will not put

    Hi joham

    On the contrary. Latin grammar rules don't always apply to English:

    Latin grammar rule

    Ex: From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.


    English grammar rule

    Ex: From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something I will not put up with.
