Scholarly writing and how to get it done. / And a workshop for my own ideas, scholarly and poetic
Dieu merci.I mean, thank God. (Side note: I have to practice speaking English all the time now because I am on a university committee whose chair does not understand any Latin abbreviations, like i.e., e.g., et al., inter alia, etc. It all started out with my using n.b. and cf. in e-mail and I got admonished to speak English. I have *never* had this problem with anyone else before, everyone in arts & sciences uses these, is it normal not to know them???)
Does s/he know "etcetera" or "ad nauseum"? No, it doesn't seem normal to me, but then again I am over 50 and have studied Latin.
