I have a reading and writing disibility. I do not understand verbs, nouns and syntax. I try to stay withing the boundaries of sentence structure. But with this disibility I am mostly misunderstood. What disturbs me more is when the reader interprets what they thought I meant in a sentence. If that is the case, why do we have a editor? I do the best I can and would ask why the reader exspects perfect understanding? I edit each word for meaning and understanding within the sentence.

I try to keep the sentences short and to the point, too keep the reader from interpreting what they thought I meant. Also please crituque this e-mail where I can hopefully try to understand why readers do this. pljames

P.S. I couldn't edit this e-mail

No matter how many times you post about this idea, the answers you get will not change. A reader will naturally interpret meaning. And of course you want your reader to try to understand what you meant. Would be you happier if a reader did his best to find an interpretation you did not intend at all?

This is the fourth or fifth time you have posted about the same thing. As Barb said, our answer isn't going to change. I am going to close this thread. If an admin disagrees, please reopen it.
