I found the following on a poster of a professional photographer:
A smile cures the wounding of a frown
The sentence seems awkward and wrong to me. I think something can cure a disease and heal wounds. So, the object should be wound and not wounding, and the verb should be heal and not cure.
But if I say, "A smile heals the wound of a frown", is this still correct and does it sound right? (I am assuming that a lot of things may be grammatically correct but will sound awkward and weird, and so should not be used.). Or should it be "A smile heals the wounds of a frown"?
