Hi

Is the word order in the following sentence correct:

"These can then be purposefully made available over a portal."

Cheers

Eve

Shouldn't you rather ask in Kudoz?

Word order Oct 16, 2005

Hello Eve,

May I suggest that you post this on the English KudoZ board? I'd say the word order is fine, but the "purposefully" makes it awkward. Perhaps consider leaving it out altogether, or can you explain just what it is meant to convey? I'm guessing it comes from the German "zielgerichtet" (or similiar), in which case you may find some inspiration under these links:

Otherwise, if you have the original text, you may want to post that in the German > English KudoZ.

Hope that helps.

Cheers--

Brie

Awkward but not incorrect Oct 17, 2005

It's not a pretty sentence, but there's nothing ungrammatical or incorrect about it, at least in my dialect (General American).
