Mod
Expector's Tips on English Usage (3): 'I don't think...'

Yes, you say "I don't think it is the case.", rather than "I think it is not the case.",  if you think something is not the case. 

That is, if 'think', 'suppose', 'believe' or 'imagine' is used to introduce a negative idea, you say 'I don't think...', 'I don't suppose...', etc. The usage is called 'transferred negation'. 

You also say 'I don't think so.', 'I don't suppose so.', etc - in a negative 'short answer' structure. 

The word…

Catherine, not from Aragon

But from the Philippines and now living with me. I've known her since grade 1, that was 23 years! Btw, she is my best friend, my alter-ego, for some instance, I can consider as my enemy too. Haha! 

She celebrated her 30th birthday last September 11, the Twin tower fall day for the USA. How to describe this girl? there is one thing that will never leave the list that she is so loud! It pissed me off when she talked to me during the time that I was very busy commenting/chatting in EC or…

The Ghost

I was in primary school level. It was a dark night. I was sleepy. But I was hearing my parent’s conversation. They were taking dinner. But suddenly I heard different kind of sounds and after that a big creature came in front of me. And then my parent’s conversation was gone suddenly. The creature was laughing to me. I was so scared. And I had cried loudly.

Do you believe Ghost? May be you don’t believe Ghost. I am not a believer of Ghost also. But sometimes some…

susceptibility

It's just a thought that I never want to hurt anyone, either by my hand or by my tongue. Honestly, I do not want to be excessively proud of myself or being conceited. That is not my track, to cause any harm or pain to anyone. Naturally, no one knows what evil lurks in the hearts of others. It's strange that some people find enjoyment in torturing others. Making different means, or use their scheme of things to hurt others. The more others are hurt, that will be their great expectations and… Continue

A Small Talk About Philosopy

It formed by two words, Philis/philia means love or friends and Sophia means wisdom. Basically it means love of wisdom or friend’s wisdom. We call something philosophy because it’s ‘reflective’, means we could agree with it and find it almost everywhere.

How many names can you recall whether he/she related to philosophy? You may said Plato, Aristotle and so on. let me bring you back to 500 years before Christ, Heraclitus said few statements which made him…

To hurt someone is a great sin

We have well-wisher’s in our life .Someone is very special. Someone has a lot of contribution in our personal life. Someone played vital role in our success. Someone cried for our sadness and someone was happy in our happiness.  But unfortunately consciously or unconsciously we hurt them brutally.

Let me explain it.

In our office, there are some colleagues who are so kind. May be they cooperated us during our beginning time. They assisted us when we were in trouble. They have…

This generation where social network was considered as the third media, another platform to be heard,to hear, to be seen, to see, to be known and to know. Way back 80's we don't have that vast knowledge what happens to Syria, to Iraq, in Europe, and in Asia in just a blink of ones' eyes or just a snap of ones' fingers.We need to wait for hours or it is conservative to say for days to know what is happening in the different part of this globe.

Are you....?

"Are you following me?", these words have two faced coin for me. One is dreadful and the other is humorous.

It was late afternoon or I should say early evening, a dusk moment. On my way home after the whole day of work, the normal me will just utter my silent prayer and thank God for His help to consummate the whole day work (because I believe I can never do this alone). My house is just a walking distance from my office, as I turned left at the corner of Aster Clinic opposite of…
