GUEST,Tam BS: OBIT: Farewell to a GUEST (55* d) RE: BS: OBIT: Farewell to a GUEST 18 Jul 02

To Greg Stephens: Unfortunately, I have no idea what point you are trying to make. I simply tried to point out that Nigel's unwarranted attack on Guest's grammar could be explained within the common rules of English usage. I would fault your "Zeugma and/or syllepsis (not synonymous) don't come into bad punctuation and bad grammar" statement. For a start, "DON'T" should be "DOESN'T". I don't understand why you consider Zeugma and Syllepsis to be not synonymous as they both refer to the ability of a verb or an adjective to modify more than one noun. Look it up in your Funk and Wagnalls.
