So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

My Editors
Monday. 11.10.08 8:54 pm
My helpful editors:

In the caption to Figure 3 I caught an instance of "different ... than". No! The usages of the comparatives (in both British and American English) are "greater than", "lesser than", "similar to" and "different from". Both "different than" (now common in the USA) and "different to" (now common in the UK) are simply WRONG.

In the third paragraph of Section 2 (and elsewhere), there are places where I have changed "compared to" to "compared with"; one thing can be compared to another if they are found to be similar, but you find out if they are similar or not by comparing one thing with another.

Compound adjectives require hyphens, independent clauses are separated by commas, the word "data" is a plural form, and quotation marks go outside of punctuation on this side of the Atlantic. We do not capitalize basin when referring to a geographic feature. Please look over the attachment carefully.

(though the last one wasn't directed at me)

An author must have a tough skin.

Just the fact that I have people that I can call "my editors" is a huge step towards publication!

Woohoo, authorship!
I always thought quotations marks go outside of punctuation regardless of which side of the Atlantic you're from.

Man, I wonder what they'd tell Stephen King? The last book of his I read was full of grammatical errors...

Are we to edit the entry? If so, the end of the post provides the edit to the beginning:
"Quotation goes outside of punctuation."

"greater than", "lesser than",

Commas go inside.

Edit your editor, and return it to 'em and be like " What now?" That'll show 'em.
» Dilated on 2008-11-10 11:15:14

Then get a new editor.

u have such good editors. my office proofreader doesn't even do that kind of comment. and sometimes my colleague's english is so much better than the proofreader. and i learnt something bout grammar from this post. thank u!

if i get heartbroken over a boy, i would be so damn elated because i can get another more handsome, more rich, and more gorgeous boyfriend. no fret. but i was heartbroken over something else. finished my entry.

It bites. I think that schizophrenia limits you... I find that there is a certain stigma attached to the disease too. =/
