Grammar evolves; how old is your book? But, yes, actually it does matter how something sounds spoken aloud. If you want your spoken language to sound stilted or stylized that's your problem, but don't come complaining to me when other people come along and decide it sounds just like what I said. - ngtm1r

*''However'' (in the meaning of "nevertheless") must *always* be preceded and followed by punctuation marks, that's the rule. All grammar books that I have seen—older and newer, including the most recent Oxford Advanced Learner's dictionary—say that. Check any that deals with punctuation; it will say just that. That's the way I learned it at high school, and now at university in Language Practice classes. - [[User:TopAce|TopAce]] 07:22, 15 May 2008 (CDT)

I tested with category:history page and it seemed to function just fine. All i had to do was to create a page named Categoty:History and add some text into it, And then correct all the category links from the concerning three articles. Also if you are doing the Ship Names could you take a look at 'Freespace 2 Ship Database' to see if there is a way of combining these quite overlapping articles. - Wanderer 05:56, 16 Nov 2005 (CET)

Thanks for the Category hint. As for the Ship names, some-one has already created a page that is the same as my Ship Names project. I will not finish it since it is already done - TopAce 17:32, 18 Nov 2005 (CET)

TopAce, our formatting on the timeline is conflicting. Please observe the gray/silver text to seperate the canon from the non-canon. Thanks! Galemp 22:26, 21 Nov 2005 (CET)

Grammar

Grammar evolves; how old is your book? But, yes, actually it does matter how something sounds spoken aloud. If you want your spoken language to sound stilted or stylized that's your problem, but don't come complaining to me when other people come along and decide it sounds just like what I said. - ngtm1r

  • However (in the meaning of "nevertheless") must *always* be preceded and followed by punctuation marks, that's the rule. All grammar books that I have seen—older and newer, including the most recent Oxford Advanced Learner's dictionary—say that. Check any that deals with punctuation; it will say just that. That's the way I learned it at high school, and now at university in Language Practice classes. - TopAce 07:22, 15 May 2008 (CDT)

By the by

"By the by" carries essentially the same meaning as "by the way." The former sees less use in contemporary English, but it is no less correct. It's good to see you keeping up with grammatical issues, but this one wasn't a problem. -- BlueFlames 20:07, 9 January 2009 (CST)
