Language Questions / with a hurt knee
« Last post by navi on November 05, 2018, 04:16:30 am »
Which are correct:

1) He was limping from a hurt knee.
2) He was playing badly from a hurt knee.

3) He was limping with a hurt knee.
4) He was playing badly with a hurt knee.

5) He was limping, with a hurt knee.
6) He was playing badly, with a hurt knee.


Do the sentences with 'with' indicate a causal relationship between the bad knee and the limping/bad playing.

Gratefully,
Navi

Language Questions / normative
« Last post by icedisk on November 05, 2018, 02:41:04 am »
What's the meaning of the underlined part in the context?

 Concentrating on increasing your own content knowledge and developing the intellectual skills to use that knowledge effectively may yield great benefits. The creative cognition approach, as developed by Ronald Finke, Steven Smith and myself, provides an organizing framework for thinking about the interplay between knowledge and skills. Within that approach, creativity is assumed to emerge from the application of ordinary, fundamental cognitive processes to existing knowledge structures which results in ideas that are novel and useful. It is important to note that the processes, which are most involved in producing such ideas, are ones that are within the capabilities of most, if not all, normal people. In effect, the potential for creative thought is normative, rather than rare for humans, which is why we have made a lot of incredible innovative progress. Many species use and even modify tools, but none other than humans have manipulated and built upon their knowledge about early versions of tools to develop new ones that ultimately lead them to escape the physical bonds of our home planet.

I absolutely agree with Darryl's reply. But I would also rephrase your question a little:
Excuse me; are you Sylvester Stallone?

Perhaps Japanese are much more polite than we are!
No, in answer to your question, Mr or Mrs would not be required in your example sentence.
