  • Is this phrase grammatically correct "this promising to be successful school year"?

    Best answer: Only @Buster has noticed so far that this COULD be correct, depending on the full context.

  • Why is British English So Redundant and Otherwise Strange?

    Examples: In the move, "A Night to Remember (1958)," the second class couple, before leaving England, promises to send their relatives a wireless "from the ship." Just where else would they send it from? A crew member who spotted the Californian exclaimed that it was so many "miles"... show more
    Examples: In the move, "A Night to Remember (1958)," the second class couple, before leaving England, promises to send their relatives a wireless "from the ship." Just where else would they send it from? A crew member who spotted the Californian exclaimed that it was so many "miles" away, with heavy emphasis on the word "miles." Was there some uncertainty about the measure of distance? Another crew member assured someone that the Carpathia should be here "any time now," which emphasis on the word "now." What does the word "now" add to the sentence? In other contexts, the British will preface an assertion with "in actual fact." If a "fact" is not "actual" (i.e. true), then it is not a fact. The British refer to an ordinary flashlight as a torch. What do they call a real torch?

  • If people who practice Christianity are Christians, then people who practice Norse Mythology are called what?

    Best answer: Sort of like asking what language Europeans speak. There was never a fixed, established, universally practiced "religion" so there is no strict and definable term for that specific generic polytheistic world view.

    Best answer: Sort of like asking what language Europeans speak. There was never a fixed, established, universally practiced "religion" so there is no strict and definable term for that specific generic polytheistic world view. It was not a structured and formalized system so there was no organization that had the last word on the "truth", and thus no name that we give to indicate such a unified belief (there was never such a unified belief so no need to name, not proper to name as if it actually was; it was not).

    Probably the most common term would be Old Norse Religion (compare Ancient Roman and Ancient Greek religions). Pagan is too broad a term. Old Norse Religion was a pagan religion, one of many. I have never met a living adherent although I bet there is someone, somewhere, that at least pretends to believe in that Norse pantheon of gods etc.

    Old Norse would be a subset of an entire family of ill-defined but similar religious belief systems that tend to be associated with iron-age societies of northern Europe.

  • Why do people still call it "Tin Foil" when actual foil made from tin has not been made since the 1940s?

    Best answer: Just like most people call cans 'tins'. They have never been made of tin, they were called 'tinned cans' as they were made of tin-plated steel. This got abbreviated to 'tin cans' and then to 'tins'. Here are a few things we say which are no longer descriptive of the action they... show more
    Best answer: Just like most people call cans 'tins'. They have never been made of tin, they were called 'tinned cans' as they were made of tin-plated steel. This got abbreviated to 'tin cans' and then to 'tins'. Here are a few things we say which are no longer descriptive of the action they refer to:-
    To 'dial' a telephone number
    To 'pull the chain'
    To 'tape' a tv programme
    'Tin foil' is also a case of referring back to the past.

  • Is this sentence grammatically correct?
