I was reading the Catcher in the Rye, and I have seen some expressions like this.
Where I lived at Pencey, I lived in the Ossenburger Memoial Wing of the new dorms.
What he did, he started these undertaking parlors all over the country.... five buks apiece.
I have never seen sentences with this type of structure and I think changing it to this will be more grammatical.
Where I lived at Pencey was Osseburger...dorms.
What he did was starting these...apiece
So which one is correct?
I know that it's arrogant of me to suggest changes to a prominent author's work, but I have realized that author used lots of slangs and profanities to make his work look more realistic, so I just had doubts. Thanks.
