I'm an old'un, that spends her time correcting young'uns - neighbours are mostly foreign born (as am I), and English is their second language, so I correct the kids on who/whom, me/I and a few others that grate on me.

Not really old, that
1:48 am
Christine

that's just my birthcertificate talking.
1:49 am
jillibus

the latest thing that grates on me is "a number of people are..." and the like. They wouldn't say "a number are..." It's very common.
1:50 am
gremlinn

I think that might be acceptable, arguably.
1:50 am
Christine

"they" seem not to understans 'a' is singular. I notice it's a common error among tv newscasters.
1:50 am
jillibus

"a number" is singular.
1:50 am
gremlinn

How about the UK style of using "are" for singular collective nouns, as in: "Microsoft today have announced..."
1:51 am
gremlinn

Yes jilli, but I think "a number of" is a special case.
1:51 am
gremlinn

Just like "a lot of people"
1:51 am
Christine

Yes - Microsoft is a single entity, unless it's Microsoft employees.
1:52 am
gremlinn

You don't say "a lot of people is going"
1:52 am
jillibus

That's an anglicism. Collectives like "Parliament" are considered to be an entity.
1:52 am
gremlinn

A plural entity, though, different from US usage.
1:53 am
jillibus

I disagree about "a number" being a special case.
1:53 am
gremlinn

What about "a lot"?
1:53 am
gremlinn

A lot of people agrees with me.
1:54 am
jillibus

Yes, grem, that's different. I should have used a different example.
1:54 am

I guess it's a descriptive vs. prescriptive grammar issue.

How about "many?"
1:55 am
dcseain

ah, gotcha, grem.... one sec, let me go search a resource...
1:56 am
gremlinn

From a grammar site: "Question Which of the following sentences is correct, or better?

* A number of people are going.
* A number of people is going.

The first sounds better, but the second seems more technically correct since "number" is singular. That is, one might also write, "Numbers of people are going."

Thanks to you in advance.
Source & Date
of Question Denver, Colorado
26 March 1997
Grammar's
Response I'm going out on a limb here to say that the phrase "a number of" always demands a plural verb. If the phrase were "the number of" -- altogether different story, right? The number of people [buying into the stock market] is increasing daily. But you knew that. It's also interesting that "a number of people" means some people, whereas "numbers of people" means very many. Don't be deceived by the fact that you can pluralize the word number into numbers.

I'm going nuts now trying to think of a situation in which the construction "a number of _______" could be singular. If I lose it again, it's going to be your fault. "
1:56 am
jillibus

Many are. Many implies a plural. A number is still singular.
1:56 am
Christine

Less/fewer - Dr's office sports a poster - get flu shots/ less colds ...
1:57 am
cbr1965

It is because you can remove the prepositional phrase "of people" and a number are going sounds right.
1:58 am
gremlinn

Some people are good. A number is evil.

1:58 am

OK, how about "a group...is..."
1:59 am
gremlinn

Depends on the context, for me.
1:59 am
gremlinn

If the group is doing something in coordination, I'd use it in the singular sense.
1:59 am
Sally-catlover

That's correct, Jilli. A group is always singular. A group of Babblers is crazy. Groups of Babblers are even more crazy.
1:59 am
jillibus

I wish I had used a different example and not "a number". There are many but I'm too tired to think of them now.
1:59 am

OK, looking back at the number question, I have reached out to my "Usage and Abusage" by Eric Partridge (considered the guru). He says: Number; whether it takes a singular or a plural verb. If a group of words, especially a partitive group, conveys the idea of plurality, a number of individuals, the verb is in the plural, even though the governing noun is singular, but the berb is singular if the group conveys the idea of oneness.
2:06 am
jillibus

unpoof for a sec. My point is that the subject should agree with the predicate.
2:06 am
Sally-catlover

sorry, berb sb verb
2:06 am
gremlinn

I wonder if "partitive" might be the word we're looking for - probably not.
2:06 am
dcseain

well, sally, British papers say "The United States are...", whereas here we say "The United States is..."
2:06 am
cbr1965

Flosey, how do you know the "formula" for the words in the puzzle (ie, si6/18)
2:06 am
gremlinn

jilli: unfortunately, English isn't completely rigid like mathematical systems.
2:06 am
gremlinn

dc: I brought that up earlier.
2:07 am
Sally-catlover

He gives examples.
2:07 am
gremlinn

cbr: there's a "Lickety's Babble Clues" link near the bottom of the page that we refer to.
2:07 am
jillibus

I know, grem -- I repeat, I wish I hadn't used "number" as the example. There are many other instances which are more obvious.
2:08 am

2:08 am
gremlinn

One of mine is (as an example): "Everyone can't make money playing the stock market."
2:08 am
gremlinn

Instead of "Not everyone can"
2:09 am
Sally-catlover

OK, he goes on ...Number as a singular noun is still found occasionally where a writer follows the outward form rather than the inner meaning.
2:10 am
jillibus

oh well, then there's the "If I would have..." instead of "If I had..." and other messed-up subjunctives.
2:10 am
gremlinn

I'm not *sure* it's wrong by accepted standards, but by rigid quantifier consideration it should be wrong.
2:10 am
Sally-catlover

Language does evolve, and it may be that British newspapers use the singular verb after number as a house style.
2:10 am
jillibus

*
re-repoof, lol!
2:10 am
gremlinn

Sally: probably analgous to my example "today a group is being recognized for its charity" ?
2:11 am
gremlinn

Although it's harder to think of an example where I'd go singular with "number" when not literally meaning the mathematical number.
2:11 am
Sally-catlover

Actually, I've just realised you said they used the plural form of the verb.
2:12 am
dcseain

"a number is..." is mathematical number, as apposed to "a number are..." , to my understanding
2:12 am
Sally-catlover

I think I would use plural, but knowing that singular is probably more "pure". One can be too precise and sound stupid.
2:13 am
gremlinn

"A number of my set is even." :-)
2:13 am
gremlinn

That's the literal number though.
2:13 am
dcseain

exactly, grem :)
2:13 am
gremlinn

And even then, "of" isn't the best choice there.
2:14 am
dcseain

yeah, 'from' or 'in' would be better
2:14 am
gremlinn

I can start sentences with conjunctions, right?
2:14 am
Sally-catlover

There are some things that really jar, for instance I personally hate "different to" because I was always taught "different from", but you just have to get used to some things without having to say them yourself. Life's too short, as they say, and nobody dies from the wrong use of language.
2:14 am
gremlinn

And ending sentences with prepositions is a habit I'm fond of.
2:15 am
gremlinn

That reminds me of the widespread use of "discriminate against". Shouldn't it be "discriminate between"?
2:15 am
Sally-catlover

Ah, now, that's something up with which I will not put!!
2:15 am
dcseain

end sentences with prepositions is attested as far back as Beowulf, and is perfectly proper in English

"I was put off of X food because of N reason..."

Indefinite... that is stressy. I will think of you both and send all the positive vibes I can.

Hi Jellen, I've been thinking about the two of you {{{hugs}}}
5:44 am
Jellen

Am still trying to wrap my head around why they brought a 9-year-old along...Tim's better, but not good...
5:44 am
Jellen

Thanks, Katie!
5:45 am
sprite

ouch, at that age they are usually quite active and noisy. Or is the kid very happy reading or gaming?
5:45 am
Jellen

Couldn't sleep...Tim woke me an hour ago for pain meds...
5:46 am
Jellen

No, she's the active and noisy type...being pretty good around Tim, though...
5:46 am
sprite

poor Tim, and poor you. Lack of sleep on top of everything else doesn't help much.
5:47 am
Jellen

It's the first bout of insomnia I've had...usually, I sleep my stress...
5:48 am
sprite

well maybe she will be a good distraction for him. There is something pure and inspiring about children, maybe it will be tiring but stimulating.
5:48 am
Jellen

That's a nice thought!

I told myself when I went to bed that I better wake up early... and so I did. But then it turned out I had everything that Tim would need to wear to work washed already. I was REALLY tired last night
6:10 am
Nancy Boy

Sustenance sounds good...too scared to eat. I don't think I'm hungover but these things attack you when you stand up ;)
6:10 am

Ouch, M9! It would have been straiiight back to bed for me!

but there are some oncologists who don't like working with palli - old school thinking they can handle stuff they don't do well
6:54 am

Jellen, what a rotten thing to say to you. And it isn't true at all.
6:55 am
Jellen

That's my take on him...
6:55 am
kje

I am happy to look into it and help find you someone - email me on FB with your location and I will help you find someone
6:55 am

the best oncology practices now have palli with them... they work together to support the patient
6:56 am
Jellen

Okay...I'd appreciate it! I don't much like Tim's oncologist...
6:56 am

my niece had cancer surgery yesterday and I told her to take whatever morphine was offered, not to do physiotherapy until she was healed and to not allow them to take daily blood samples (for what?)
6:56 am

wonderful, kje. By supporting the patient they will free Jellen a little bit too.
6:57 am

He passes most of the palliative care stuff onto his nurses...

but that is the problem - they do not want to deal with it all, and yet he won't refer to someone who specializes in doing it? I understand what they fear, but they take it way too personal - it is not about what he wants but about what you and Tim need
6:58 am

he may be good technically but his human skills seem to lack. All the more reason to seek support from another source.

8:25 am
NonoNanette

8:25 am
Jellen

Before that is chat...you can mute annoying chatters and there's a link to report trolls to DrG...

Jellen

Let me check, hurshy...

8:30 am
lynxxx

Hello Phae
8:30 am
hurshy

we used to have the Add Chat button, you had to click to post your chat. then he got rid of it and now we have all these accidental postings of words.
8:30 am
Jellen

Oh...
8:30 am
hurshy

all i've ever wanted is the button back.
8:30 am
bonkler

morning all. also would like to know what add chat button does if there's already a chat log
8:31 am

That IS a good idea
8:31 am

hurshy

oh thank you jellen, that is so helpful.
8:32 am
hurshy

i am so lazy!
8:32 am
bonkler

don't care about the add chat button then. that would eradicate the penalty box. much rather have an actual penalty box.
8:33 am
hurshy

*rolls eyes*
8:33 am
hurshy

you know, when we had the button, and no penalty box, we had a jacuzzi.
8:33 am
hurshy

and lots of champagne.
8:34 am
bonkler

*unrolls eye*
8:34 am
Jellen

Jacuzzi sounds good right now...
8:34 am
bonkler

a crispy bacon buffet and i might be convinced
8:35 am
hurshy

crispy bacon buffet right next to the jacuzzi, naturally.
8:35 am
lynxxx

what is it with you Canadians and bacon?
8:35 am
bonkler

still don't care about the chat button. very pleased to see a selective mute button on the horizon for troll zapping
8:36 am

we are an indoor people for half a year at a time. bacon is comfort food
8:36 am

9:23 am
m9f9l

we had a cat when I was little that only my dad could get the pill down. and it was a big pill. I remember him pushing it way down throat, and then he had to stroke her throat to make sure it went down. or she'd spit it up.
9:24 am
Jellen

That's hilarious, jbp!

11:34 am

What is more worthwhile than Babble ????
11:34 am

Then again, sipping ice cold tea and watching my husband weed whack is fairly worthwhile.

My Resignation


I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult.
I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities
of an 8 year-old again.

I want to go to McDonald's
and think that it's a four star restaurant.

I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle
and make a sidewalk with rocks.

I want to think M&Ms are better than money
because you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big oak tree
and run a lemonade stand with my friends
on a hot summer's day.

I want to return to a time when life was simple;
when all you knew were colours,
multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes,
but that didn't bother you,
because you didn't know what you didn't know
and you didn't care.

All you knew was to be happy
because you were blissfully unaware
of all the things that should make you worried
or upset.

I want to think the world is fair;
that everyone is honest and good.

I want to believe that anything is possible.
I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life
and be overly excited by the little things again.

I want to live simple again.
I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes,
mountains of paperwork,
depressing news,
how to survive more days in the month
than there is money in the bank,
doctor bills,
gossip,
illness,
and the loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs,
and a kind word;
truth,
justice,
peace,
dreams,
imagination,
mankind,
and making angels in the snow.

So . . . here's my checkbook and my car-keys,
my credit card bills and my 401K statements.

I am officially resigning from adulthood.
And if you want to discuss this further,
you'll have to catch me first, cause........

it is not very often that i can catch the essence of an event,but in honor my my father who his now failing,i shall try this before i head off to work: my best memory as a child was going on fishing trips with my father.he would rouse me out of bed at the unreal seeming hour of 4 am and i would sluggishly get dressed,have a pee and head down to the kitchen.my mother would sometimes be up and make us a full english style breakfast before we headed out.I can actually see in my minds eye the big checkered thermos my dad used to bring with us,full of hot sweet coffee for the trip.As we drove to the marina ,i would drowse off again and awaken with my father shaking my shoulder and to the sight of our boat tied to a dock half hidden in the morning mist.How i still love the smells,of the marina,of the motor running at idle as we prepared to shove off,the smell of my dads old spice and my first taste of coffee that he would share with me.it was a secret world,a world of men,with mother safely back at home and the brave hunters about to embark. we almost seem to float on the morning water fog somewhere between air and water as the sun began to rise and burn away to fog and a chill would course through me as a loon gave it,s haunting call nearby and i did my first cast of the day.The rising sun would reflect off the beads of water clinging to the line and it is still a memory i shall never forget..

8:47 pm

They brought along Tim's niece, a hyperactive nine-year-old, even though Tim specifically asked his mom not to...

8:49 pm

Tim finally retreated to the bedroom to sleep...he's really not well, you know?

Jellen

I followed shortly thereafter...
8:49 pm

8:50 pm

8:52 pm
Jellen

Oh, and she's made arrangements at work to take off as much time as she wants...
8:52 pm
Jellen

I don't think they're very aware that way, lbd...
8:52 pm

You have to put your foot down (together)
8:52 pm

Since you aren't married yet, unfortunately, Tim should tell Mom and family to take a hike.
8:53 pm
gwenski

Sounds like ground rules are needed.
8:53 pm
72 Temple Owl

sdly, though he is weak he will prob have to fix this unless he is actually unable
8:54 pm

It really doesn't matter what is said or how nicely it is put. Mum will probably have her feelings hurt thinking you are keeping him to yourself. Know this ahead of time and be firm about who you will share him with. Parents are okay, neices etc are not.

kje

be wise, don't answer
9:22 pm
lbdawger

boy, she opened that can of worms all by herself!

But I was a da 5/12 and da 5/14 to do this irresistable websi4/4. It was a nice grid si 4/9 today and clues from chog & list le 4/5 me to my fireworks. Nothing could de 5/12 me from babbling today. I ado 4/5 this game.Then I had to te 4/4 myself away from the game to goto a party which I dr5/14ed going to. Husband said we ei 6/21 take a tr 4/5 to Long Island and go fishing off the pi 4/5 with his brother or goto the pool party.I hate it when he or 5/12s me around. I just wanted to stick my sh 4/5s up his arse. If I or 7/36 him around he would hate it. Sometimes I do do that, however, it is ra 4/4. Anyway, I try to ev 5/16 any visits to his brother's house. So I ro 4/5 over to my friend's house for the pool party. So th 5/12 is my story. I hope you found some words with th4/5. I am de 4/6 to the world & very ti 4/4d now so I am going to re 6/18 for the ni 4/4. I'm going to get into my co 5/12 bed and be a re 6/21 and re 4/5 a book. Adios!

11:01 pm
stidmama

11:02 pm
Jellen

Tim's mom made some pretty good chicken and dumplings today for lunch...
11:03 pm
Jellen

But then she left it on the stove until tonight...
11:03 pm
stidmama

that sounds lovely, too. was tim up for eating much?
11:03 pm
jillibus

Hello -- 42 left to go :(
11:03 pm
stidmama

when my paternal unit was in chemo it was hard to find things he was interested in sometimes.
11:03 pm
stidmama

hey jill
11:03 pm
Jellen

<--afraid of food poisoning...
11:03 pm
jillibus

stid -- your pa had chemo?
11:03 pm
Jellen

Tim ate some, and then some fried chicken and sides for dinner...
11:04 pm
Jellen

Hi, jilli!
11:04 pm
stidmama

oh dear. Tim CAN'T eat stuff like that when he is in chemo. VERY IMPORTANT that food be prepared and eaten right away. ABSOLUTELY imperative.
11:04 pm
jillibus

that's good, jellen
11:04 pm
Jellen

I know!
11:04 pm
jillibus

I guess that's not good then :(
11:05 pm
Jellen

I'll throw it out tomorrow after they leave...
11:05 pm
stidmama

Jellen, get the handout from the docs about food handling safety during chemo and give it to his mother.
11:05 pm
stidmama

even a single bite for him could be tragic.
11:06 pm
jillibus

<-- backs out of subject she knows nothing about
11:06 pm
Jellen

He ate it when it was fresh, jilli...
11:06 pm
jillibus

Oh, thank goodness!
11:06 pm
Jellen

Guess I show go down and patrol the kitchen...
11:07 pm
stidmama

if it was fresh, it's probably okay, but NOT okay to reheat it now and serve it.
11:07 pm
Jellen

*should, not show
11:08 pm
stidmama

it would be okay for you, and for the others, but not for tim. proper food handling is essential.
11:10 pm
Jellen

I've always been leery of stuff being left out...
11:10 pm
Jellen

Or staying in the fridge too long...
11:10 pm
shdybr8

back, if i told my supposed spouse something like that, it would mean i was a c-word, and trying to control his life
11:11 pm
Jellen

((shdy))
11:11 pm
stidmama

the docs who are doing the chemo should have provided you with some guidance... hold on.
11:11 pm
jillibus

<-- really backing out!
11:11 pm
shdybr8

instead of just trying to care
11:12 pm

11:13 pm
shdybr8
