...I'm purely interested in the syntax; also, I don't care whether something is 'officially' grammatical or not, just tell me how you feel about it. It's people that create language, not grammar books. :)
So, on a scale of 0 to 3 (0 for very bad, 1 for rather bad/very odd, 2 for slightly odd and 3 for perfectly fine), what are your intuitions on these sentences?
Thanks a lot!
