Sorry to be a pedant, but the sub-heading of this section of the forums has been bugging me for a while. I'm sure I'm not immune to grammatical errors myself, and I'm very much of the school of thought that says that language is a dynamic tool which shifts and develops all the time and that rules aren't all that helpful, ... but it just doesn't read well to me:
'Discuss Peter's discography both past, present and future'
Surely, if it was just 'past and present' (2 things), then 'both' would be fine, but as there are three things we're talking about - 'past, present & future' (3 things), then both isn't the right word? Can anyone suggest a better way of putting it?
Perhaps someone could look into this pressing matter...
