General Off-Topic Board / Re: Need grammar advice. Which of the two is correct, if they are correct?« on: November 24, 2008, 12:36:31 AM »
Ok I think ppl agree more with using it with possessive.
Correct. Ignore this whole "burying the lead" tripe. It's not a concern when this desired lead immediately follows that which possesses it -- it's not like it's going to get lost in a paragraph somewhere.
Your readers are (somewhat) intelligent adcomms to whom the phrase arrives in its entirety intuitively, rather than ESL or slower English readers who might be tripped up by this construction.
no...you are wrong...it depends on the sentence before it and after it...context as well. you don't want to have repetitive sentences...i was crown college's glee club founder. i was crown college's newspaper editor. i was crown college's champion wrestler.
best to just answer the question and sometimes keep the lead at the beginning of the sentence.
So do you have a recommendation for a more coherent example to my grammar question?
