comment Can you say “accurate to”?
@LeoKing Your sentence, "The building is accurate to its schematics", sounds silly. It's awkward and unnatural and wouldn't ever get used so trying to prove its grammatical validity is pointless really, looking for the correct way to phrase it however, might not be.

@EdwinAshworth I'm in the UK. This language is usually used in a semi-technical context and you would normally omit "of" in these situations. The sentence wouldn't be used much outside the likes of a geography book etc imo, you'd use a less formal expression. In fairness "to" should go as well given what I've just said, so "months May through October". Definitely think "of" 'disturbs' the relationship to the later part of the sentence in this situation however.

Either actually I'd say. The omission of of is a common shorthand

To use your example would be "... an accurate representation of the buildings schematics"

comment “Guess dress brand” or “Guess clothes brand”?
No, it sounds broken as a sentence. "guess the clothing brand" is the closest but less elegant

But in this case, "accurate to" is an unnatural choice.
