Clitic Pronoun Attached

Famous quotes containing the words pronoun and/or attached:

    Would mankind be but contented without the continual use of that little but significant pronoun “mine” or “my own,” with what luxurious delight might they revel in the property of others!... But if envy makes me sicken at the sight of everything that is excellent out of my own possession, then will the sweetest food be sharp as vinegar, and every beauty will in my depraved eyes appear as deformity.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    Action without a name, a “who” attached to it, is meaningless.
