Should I use "from my perspective", or "in my perspective" or "on my perspective?" Can "standpoint" and "view" be used in the same way?

    Yes, but that's redundant. Unless you're quoting some other authority, what comes from your mouth or pen is generally considered or understood to be your opinion/view/perspective/standpoint. Contrast: Speaking on behalf of other(s), Speaking as a definitive source. – SrJoven Oct 13 '14 at 11:47

  • It's too long to discuss. "From my perspective/view/standpoint/point of view" is correct. If you'd like answers on the nuance of "From my perspective" in English Language and Usage as it relates to whether and when it's proper to use it, I figure that might be an interesting question. – SrJoven Oct 13 '14 at 13:52

I would use 'from my perspective', 'from my standpoint' or 'in my view'. I personally wouldn't use any of the other variations.
