Thanks for the hint, Ahmed88, I forgot, it must have been the heat here...

Any time sir.
Still, you have to start a new sentense with it must have been the heat here
I forgot. It must have been the heat here.

Dear Ulli,

Sorry my lady for this confusion.

I hope you would never forget "i" in "abbreviation "

I am afraid you should hyphenate "proofreaders". Proof-readers

Proofreaders is also acceptable.

Dear Shane,

Your English is American. Mine is a British one.

Besides, do not you think that "proof-readers" is a compound word that should be hyphenated?

I'm afraid you're mistaken Ahmed. I speak British English. What's more, the link I gave you was to the Cambridge English website - Cambridge English being British English.

IMHO, I think both hyphenated and non-hyphenated are acceptable. ;)



P.S. Say 'Mine is British', not 'Mine is a British one'.
