comment How are embedded quotations used?
But we can't use the same inner quotes within inner quotes otherwise that would look like it's ending that inner quote.

What happens when we have 3 layers? How do we write a quotation mark in an inner quotation mark?

comment “never did” vs “never does”
Do you mean to say that "never does" places the narrator back into the time when the story happened, whereas "never did" places the narrator at the present time, telling a past story?

@Kris Since "man" is a subset of animal, we can't use Psychology to refer to the "study of animal mind and behavior" right?

comment When to use “have” and “have got”
Thanks for the reply =) Btw, if what I wanted to say is that "I have a habit presently", is there a difference in meaning between saying "I've got a habit of something" and "I've a habit of something"? (is the second one colloquial?)
