Ringer BS: English grammar question (351* d) RE: BS: English grammar question 15 Dec 09


S&r's contribution, Date: 17 Feb 09 - 06:19 PM, of all those "had"s only makes sense if punctuated correctly.

I knew it as:

The teacher thought that although Smith, where Jones had had "had had" had had "had," "had had " had it. Mine has 10 consecutive "had"s - how does s&r punctuate his 11?

Smith, where Jones had had "had had" had had "had;" "had had" had the examiner's approval - 10 again, same as mine. Any other offers?
