comment Should I put a comma in this sentence?
It is exactly as wrong as your comma after "after".

comment Should I put a comma in this sentence?
Not only would it split the phrase, but the big things is that it would also create a parenthetical, without which the sentence reads "When people think, they typically associate the idea with school teachers", which makes no sense at all.

comment Curious words that make me suspicious
I submit that there are dozens of examples, and if we can't think of one, that merely means we're not thinking hard enough.

comment Curious words that make me suspicious
That stranger is healthy. Doesn't tell you if he is in good health himself, or good for your health, e.g. if you're a lion talking to another lion.

comment The meaning of “public cable”
The comma is only correct if the intended meaning is the latter. But it is hard to tell what the intended meaning is without any context — doubly so if you can't tell what it is with all the context that you do have.

comment Various uses of the word “let”
What is "the a-z use"? I am not familiar with that kind of use.

comment Curious words that make me suspicious
I am sad about that sad thing. I am happy about that happy coincidence. I am stinky about that stinky detail. I am mad at that mad plan. I am fucked up by that fucked up mountain. I am giddy because of this giddy height. And I am limited by the limited space here.

comment Is this sentence necessarily too long
This is way too localized. It is not going to help anyone else, and is not even going to help yourself on other occasions.

comment How do I decide which word to add to remove an ambiguity?
It means neither. It means that two per ten sheets are the ones who find the errors. Which makes zero sense.

We do not do ghostwriting here, and we do not do translation. Please consult a bilingual dictionary of your choice. As a side note, if the quality of the writing on the slides matches that in this question, it won't really matter what wording you use, as the readers will be distracted by other, graver issues.

comment Comparison between action of two nouns
That is not a parse tree that is possible at all. (But even if it were, it would make zero sense.) My answer still stands.

comment Use of articles “the”/“a”
Please also proofread your post before submitting. There is no such thing as "grammer" or "sentance", there must be no white space before a question mark, etc. Thank you.
