The woodcock sentence had some logical flow to it. There is a whale in the previous sentence without any context. I don't think that the sentence was also grammatically correct .Soul said:Like the woodcock sucking sentence made sense? Please!
Seriouslu, @epic: I don't mean to mess up your game. Please correct my error and carry on from the improved version.
epic said:I don't want to be a grammar nazi again but "hole" doesn't make sense in this sentence. You can use "blot" instead of "lot" .
"looming on" is a very common phrase eg I could see another storm cloud looming on the horizon(Source of example below) .Soul said:Sigh. Okay. So what does "looming on" mean, seriously?
"shaming" is undesirable just like a "blot" which is commonly used metaphorically in sentences.So it makes complete sense to use it here . eg The public shaming put a blot on her career . Although whole is not a perfect word it is still emphasizing how big the "blot(of shaming)" is, so that too is acceptable.Soul said:and what is "a whole blot of shaming"?
Would "a whale pod of shaming" be acceptable, and if not why is it less ok than "a whole blot of shaming"?
I am all for giving leeway, but if the words don't fit in a logical way, it becomes a word salad. The whole fun of the game is making good sentences till the end.Soul said:It's not much fun if you don't give people more leeway.
