Then I post to this forum, I never want to make my posts rest on any supposed "authority" I have. That's no better than "It's true because the Society says so".
Really thats why you claim scholars agree on this and that and finally admit you have no references to show. Also your texts contain a lot of "I" this and that. I never claim to be an authority, i always represent my comments as my own.
Why dont you ever give links ? COuld it be that the texts arent quite as conclusive or say other things that you dont want us to see ? I wonder.
But the way you understand language is so fundamentally different from mine, it would take a lot of explanation of linguistics basics, methodologies, etc. and I really am not interested in doing that in the way I normally do
Yes im honest, when im giving my opinion i say so. I dont make wonderful claims that scholars believe this and then fail to provide a single one.
I also share my links for everyone to read. They may be wrong, they may be right, but i share.
You cut and paste delibrately leaving links out. I dislike people who dont share when its so easy to do so.
