Language Questions / Re: Grammatical?

Thanks, but I would think the definition of leadership varies - people define their version of leadership.
That's why using the passive structure corresponds to the various definition of it.

Thanks, tk. Here's a piece of the poem I was thinking of:

Core of my heart, my country!
Her pitiless blue sky,
When, sick at heart, around us
We see the cattle die
But then the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The steady soaking rain.

Thanks Bertha - yes
Or - What, exactly, does leadership mean?

'What exactly is leadership meant?'

Is the above sentence grammatical? I was told by a native speaker that it's ungrammatical. Grateful if I have your advice.

Many thanks

Either of these would work, but your sample does not:

  • What exactly is leadership?
  • What does 'leadership' mean exactly?

Yes, you can. I would probably choose a colour other than red. Italics perhaps.
Alternatively, you could answer each question as a dot point summary.
I don't think he would need direction from you; your replies would be clear to see.
