Re: Comprise vs Consists Of ?
Just because words are plain English doesn't mean the average reader will understand them.
I try to avoid using my "three Cs list" (consist, comprise, compose unless talking about music), because there's always somebody who won't get them right.
Or plain Latin, e.g. "i.e." "verb. sap." etc.
I loathe hearing the spoken "etc.":
- Eck settera
- Eck settera and eck settera and eck settera
- And et settera and et settera.
Eschew obfuscatory and Latinate pomposity!
