3. Troublesome Words
These notes are from the 2018 version of the course. A significantly expanded new version will be made available once the 2019 course starts. 🤓
In this lecture we cover certain words that can lead to confusion if misused. In particular, we discuss determiners, which come before the nouns and provide them with context (articles, possessives etc.), and some potentially ambiguous pronouns (it, they) and words that require thorough justification (problem, interesting).
