    sentence correction

    hi everyone, im a newbie here. i wrote a sentence in english but i dont know whether its got any mistakes. hope you can help me find out them.

    I do come across this word sometimes when people dont want others to know the meaning of the word they use so that they may seem more knowledgeable.
    is there any redundancy? or how to write it to make this sentence sound better?

    thanks in advance.

    Re: sentence correction

    I do sometimes come across this word; it is often spoken by people who use it in the hope that others will not understand its meaning, in order that they, themselves, may seem more knowledgable.

    I'm not sure if this version retains the intended meaning of what you had in mind.

    I'm not a teacher.

    That looks fine to me.

    I would start a new thread if you have a completely new question.
