I have for many year wondered what is missing when I read sentences like
David Canton, the Education Department spokesman, stated: “(It) shouldn’t have happened. (C)ommon sense should prevail.”
I can understand that (It) might mean mean that the transcriber did not hear the "It" - perhaps the person omitted the word, but "(C)ommon"?
Would that mean that the recording might have some noise drowning the "C" out and the transcriber could not hear it or how do you interpret this?
