in reply to A few grammar checks for strings
- About 30% of all code is garbage.
- Beyond the hills lies the ocean.
- Following the calves were the wolves.
The last can be faulted for not using clearer construction, but passes muster for any strict test of grammar. The second is easy enough to defend at poetic, at worst and the first is a legitmate use of the passive voice to stress the asserted percentage.As to ending sentences with your "prepositions," try this:
- "The bowl is 9 inches across."
