Did you mean that "living" implies "creatures"? I guess so because you omit "creatures", not "living" and one can omit what is implied, not what implies (I can be wrong - I have just finished my mathematical logic course and my brain is a mess now ). I can agree with that, but I don't think we are supposed to speak always in the shortest, non-pleonasmic way. By the way it's a bit off-topicI guess, the word "creatures" implies "the living"
We should respect all the living or,
We should respect the living
Ok, thank you very much. Would you, please, explain what the difference is? I mean, I chose these the examples so that I get an impression through them and I did. But I still couldn't verbalize the difference and am still not sure if I know it already.live lobster, "We should respect all living creatures."
