After last nights party my nose was full of alcohol. It was pretty hard to dance on the table trying to drink my longdrink, chat with friends and try to stay on feet. Sigh. So instead of dropping from my feet or dropping from the table I chose to let loose one gurggling noise when the longdrink entered my nose. It felt funny.

That cow freaks the living crap out of me. Most cows do - bloody weird creatures.
I did shepherd cows in one summer : I think it was 1995 or 1996. I did other farm jobs as well, used axe to chop wood, shovel cow poop, grow tomatoes and stuff like that. It was great fun. There was tradition on that farm that they took their cows to nearby island where they could be free, eat grass and all stuff that cows do. Like moo. They were actually towed behind motor-boat because cows, although they did know how to swim they rarely did that. They were at cowhouse (or what the heck it's called in english, navetta in finnish) most of the year and it was pretty hard to get them even out of that cowhouse in first place. And then the swimming part. It looked super funny. First the cow swum underwater for 5 meters or so and then rose above surface and started to swim. Then it was all guidance. I had the chance to see how they fertilize cow, too. It was interesting. Thou more interesting was the woman who did that. She was extremely hot...

Cows are funny creatures, they are. They were so happy when they were in that island.

Yeah, cows...

In the matter of fact they did not do that on the island. But they did run quite wildly with their eyes big as plates after they got out. Then I did understand finnish saying "juoksee kuin lehmä keväällä" trsl.  "runs like a cow at spring"... Mindless, wild running. And for a moment, I did run with them... T_T

Hehhehehehhe Trias is righter than fallout.

"Instead of" would be correct, but nothing at all is wrong with "over." Over is actually a little more right when used with "choose" than when used with "prefer."

"Probability of something happening" or "probability that something will happen" are both correct.

"Probability that something happens" is incorrect, by the strict standards.
Title: Re: I say, I say, I say..
Post by: PrescriptiveBarony on September 29, 2006, 06:31:02 am
Which is to say that, to use "probability that", it needs to be followed by an independent clause ( a sentence, more or less).

What is the probability that [I know what the hell I'm talking about]? Very high.
Title: Re: I say, I say, I say..
Post by: Trias on September 29, 2006, 11:14:54 am
Maybe it's an UK vs US thing whether you can use the "that" construct or not?


"Probability of something happening" or "probability that something will happen" are both correct.

"Probability that something happens" is incorrect, by the strict standards.

Are you sure? How about

"the probability that it rains on Thursdays is 1/7"?

Sounds better to me than

"the probability that it will rain on Thursdays is 1/7"?    (i.e. speaking of thursdays in general, not a particular one)

You're right; I actually included that in my explanation but I hadn't paid enough attention to Harvey's statement of what was incorrect. It looks weird, especially in an abstracted, non-real-world context, but it is right in all the ways that matter.

"The probability that something happens will depend upon someone's level of motivation to do it."

It's just hard to use it with a present tense. Your example about raining on Thursdays is close, but by using the present tense, it doesn't quite make sense, because probability is not the same as a statistic; that is to say, whether or not it rained on any given Thursday in the past is not subject to any probability at all, because it either happened or didn't, there can't be a chance that something happened in the past. And of course since English is English, using the present in this case encompasses the past as well.

So the problem there is the word "probability," not "that."

The second sentence is also weird not because of "that" but because of what it means, which is that a vague selection of thursdays in the future will undoubtedly be subject to a certain chance of precipitation. It's a very strange thing to say, and one which could not be known as absolutely as it's presented.

well, ok, that thursday example doesn't help. I need to know it in a maths context. How about this:

"the probability that a thrown die reads a 1 is 1/6"

hm, but I see your point. I assume this one is correct:

"When a die is thrown, the probabilty that it will yield a 1 is 1/6".

hm, on the other hand.. but at least this one:

"Assume I throw a die. The probability that I will get a 1 is 1/6."

LOL yeah, we English abuse the English language and change spellings to confuse Americans...

the point is there's no such thing as "English." There's a spectrum of mutually intelligible dialects, none of which has any superiority in relation to any others. As you get farther down the spectrum intelligibility is lost; someone from Louisiana would have all manner of trouble conversing with a Scotsman, but it's not because either of them are speaking English wrong. It's because they're speaking different dialects with different words, structures, phonology, etc.

Perhaps we should all speak as Beowulf is written?

... even though most of the people in my state have better grammar than the majority of people in London.  ;)
And hey, we don't pronounce "three" as "free", remember.

It's allllll dialectical, like Prescriptive said. People in Alberta speak... like... this...

ButhenpeopleinNewFoundlandspeaklikethisandseemtocutatlesttwolettersoffofeveryword. Hell, in my own state, people have a habit of pronouncing "ar" as "ah". Don't ask me how it happened; I couldn't say. People in Castille, Spain, pronounce their "s's" as "th's", and people in El Salvador pronounce their double-l's as a rolling j.

How do you think Latin turned into any one of the Romantic Languages? Communication is a constantly changing thing. The same reason people in America stopped spelling "color" as "colour," "shop" as "shoppe," etc. is the same as people on the internet gradually moving away from using capital letters and punctuation to things like "u" for "you" and "pwned" as "owned".

Can it be made so posts here don't go towards the post count?
Title: Re: I say, I say, I say..
Post by: PrescriptiveBarony on October 03, 2006, 07:56:51 am
I would support that idea except that by doing so i would be accepting the a priori that post count has anything to do with anything.
