Hello all users!




Does "It is permissible/admissible for you to sleep here" mean the same as "You may sleep here" and "You are allowed/permitted to sleep here"?

I think so. In my opinion, the permissible/admissible structure with infinitive (plus for noun/pronoun) is very rare.

What do you think?


Thank you.

Re: Hello all users!

I agree with you.

I have changed your thread title.
