      But "is" refers to me and my preference, not (directly) to my favourite.

      Can I not say that my favourite music composer is JS Bach?

      If I say that my favourite composer was JS Bach, does that not mean simply that I have changed my mind? Surely it doesn't mean that I was contemporaneous to him, and he remained my favourite until I outlived him?

      Can I not say say that my favourite composer was Katy Perry, but now is JS Bach?

      Not being persnickety here; my favourite continent is Pangaea. Really!


      Remember: Ne dederis in spiritu molere illegitimi!

        Heh. Since posting that, i have been reviewing that in my mind. I still don't think they fit what i have in mind, but i'm not against a pollster adding it in an actual poll.
