  • Congratulations. I still hate your club and the chinless halfwit collecting a wage by pretending to be your waterboy
    Dear Mate

    Love your work but I think you're wrong here:

    ...Just a minor point Professor of English ,it is not good English to begin a sentence with "so' or " and"...

    From Fowler's Modern English Usage'-

    AND. beginning of sentences. That is a solecism (means incorrect in the construction of sentences) to begin a sentence with 'and' is a faintly lingering SUPERSTITION. The OECD gives example of it ranging from the 10th to the 19th century; the Bible is full of them.

    The same with 'so.' Have a look on Wiki & Google

    Don't worry I seem to remember being taught those rules.

    Regards
