  1. Question… Are we supposed to edit your punctuation and grammar?

    Don’t know if this is the correct location to place a comment for this assignment but all I can say is that it is correct that all of your expressions must be expressed clearly throughout both speaking and writing.

    “You Can Edit What You Write But You Cannot Edit What You Say (this means you in some ways are much more free in writing)” I agree with the second part of this; that we are in a way much more free in wirting. But I feel like we can say somethings and correct them as we say them in order to get the listener to understand. In writing, once we’ve made a statement, and its published we can’t get rid of that. Maybe we can write something to replace it, but other “factors,” consequences will come with that. I hope I got my opinion clear.
