Re: OT: Preposition at end [Was: Ha-Ha! [Was:Politics [Was:Social Contract]]]
Preposition at end is not forbidden by English
grammar. I quote Fowler, "Modern English Usage", from the article
"Preposition at End":
Hmm; I always thought that prepositions were to be avoided at the end of
sentences. It's very often felt convoluted to me to try to make a
statement with this concept in mind. I'm so glad you posted this; I'm
now Free! W00t!
"The fact is that the remarkable freedom enjoyed by English in putting
its prepositions late & omitting its relatives is an important element
in the flexibility of the language."
(And speaking of Freedom, anyone ever heard of that newfangled OS,
Debian? I hear it's the Hots, baby. ;-) )
