comment Jane Austen use of triple negative in Pride & Prejudice (Chapter 28)
Why does the title say "triple negative"?

comment Does 'which' refer to the noun immediately preceding it?
It seems adding the "and" gives the opposite meaning I intended. It is Definition 23 that is typically given in texts, not Proposition 25. So I guess it must indeed be quite ambiguous!

Yes, I considered that too. But does that have any bearing on the ambiguity of the 'which'?

@JohnLawler Okay thanks. In the example I provided, do you agree with the referee?

I'm not too familiar with the tags on this site. I tried to find the most appropriate ones, but re-tagging would be most appreciated.

@Robusto But none of the lines have 12 syllables. Does that matter? Should some syllables be "merged"?

comment Verb corresponding to schedule, but for a place (instead of time)
Regarding my specific example, I don't think that "the meeting is situated in the conference room" or would make sense. Do you?

Thanks. Can't you just use HTML here on StackExchange to underline text?
