Q.

Yes, I have a question: why is this article an exact verbatim copy of the work of Professor Paul Brians of Washington State University, and yet is stated to be the work of Mr. Sharma?

See the site from which this article was lifted here:

http://www.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/nonerro rs.html

At the very least Prof. Brians should have been acknowledged as the author.

By the way, note the copy error on "Near miss."

How did this Jagruti Sharma have the guts to steal a whole page from the work of a distinguished professor & call it her own? She may not be an English linguist, but she certainly is one big Bandit Queen for the English language.
