Hey, I just call it like I read it, if you need to argue to convince me ex-post-facto that it's not confusing, that doesn't really make your case :-(

It could be "your mum" coming from the speaker as he is now, i.e. the listener's mother, or "your mum" coming from the speaker in when "I were you" holds, i.e. coming from the listener, i.e. the speaker's mother.

Actually, it's not entirely clear, with either option.

comment What is the proper plural form of 'apparatus'?
How does the vowel extension reflect? Also, where can I read about determining which declension a noun is?

comment Which style of Latin plurals should I use?
Well, if people start using the right plurals then eventually nobody will get it wrong because they'll know for certain what the right form is.

comment 'Eventually' — in the past or by some point in the future
@Robusto: That's exactly what I was aiming for. The thing about the person being long gone is that there is this some long/infinite/indefinite stretch in which the 'eventually' occurs.

Clarified (I hope) the latter part of my question.

comment 'Eventually' — in the past or by some point in the future
Edited my question to clarify the latter example. About the "sent it eventualy" - Bob wants to say that he's certain it was sent in the past, but isn't sure, when, i.e. that Charlotte did not let time pass until the present moment without sending the email.
