A fellow student of mine had put this into our report:
"How does men account for the effect on walls?"
now.. those first three words are so opposite to what i believe should be there (i.e. how do men-, how does one-, of which the latter variation is the better) that i have no idea how to explain this to him.
I have tried to explain it along the lines of "men is plural, and plurals -do-", "does is singular, a single human is -one-". but he doesn't agree.
HELP me by giving your own explanation, try to keep it as clear and simple as possible.
thanks in advance!
P.S.: also, if i'm wrong somehow i would like to know how and why :P
I know that Inuit is specific to a tribe, but surely there are more fundamental differences than that.
What are the reasons for "Eskimo" being phased out and "Inuit" phased in?
