comment Emphasising that a date is near
Yes, this is an example. Perhaps trying an alternative method would be a better way to reach a deadline.

comment Is there such thing as an online preposition dictionary?
It would have been great if the website has a search function. Nevertheless, a very useful list of verbs and prepositions. Thanks!

That is a really useful dictionary! Sadly, the system appears to be buggy and unstable. I tried a few searches on the site and the results page doesn't load correctly for certain words. The result page may take a long time to load and then display the page with only the search box.

comment Article word referencing problem
Thanks! It seems to be a very difficult thing to identify the correct reference; just a apostrophe alone is enough to change the reference. The rewrite you suggested really makes the whole thing reads clearer. The only thing though is I wouldn't have thought of phrasing it in this way, with an additional "from that of". The most I may add is simply "from its predecessor", which still doesn't sound as good as your suggestion. What additional meaning does it give to the sentence by adding "from that of"?

@Em1 Thanks, I didn't know I could search this way. "interpretation with" returns with no examples. "interpretation on" has only one example but I still don't see the difference in meanings with the different prepositions.
