    1. logIntoMicrosoft

      I think logInToMicrosoft would be slightly better, but this is surely much better than the completely incorrect loginToMicrosoft

    2. loginTo

      Incorrect. Should be logInTo or logInto, same as it is in the other functions, logIntoMicrosoft, ...

    1. You can also find the combination verb+in+to, but in that case you're usually dealing with a phrasal verb consisting of a verb and the particle "in", which happens to be followed by the preposition "to".They wouldn't give in to our demands.
    2. "Built in to" appears when you use the phrasal verb "build in" followed by an infinitive, but that is not what you are trying to do in your sentence.There's an electronic switch built in to stop all data transfers.

    1. (Note that although 'n/yn here is not actually translated into English, it does act as a marker showing that the action is 'in progress', unfinished.

      "yn" (or it's contraction "'n") is a marker in Welsh to indicate that the action of a verb is in progress or unfinished.

      Example: Dw i'n hoffi coffi.

I will detail expressions of emotional labour by my par-ticipants –in the form of pro-social motivations, entrepreneurial risk,financial precarity and the navigation of ethical complexities, includinggender, race and class dynamics –before turning to the implicationsof this labour on changing fashion practises.

      Here is an example of when the author uses present tense before switching back to past tense

    2. Social entrepreneurs are also considered to face increased businessrisk compared to traditional entrepreneurs;

      The verb tense has changed back to the past tense. Sometimes the author interjects to describe her own feelings in the present tense as well.

    3. SF entrepreneurs like Greenpants play a crucial role in the“unmaking of unsustainability”6 of fashion, yet they face a range ofchallenges in this quest

      Goes from past to present tense in the same section.

    1. This is one of many pages that lists verbs at various levels of Bloom's old taxonomy (verb lists for the new version are easy to find as well). This one has green bars across the page so may not be best for those who are trying to preserve ink though it is easy and attractive to use if referring to it on the screen. Rating 4/5

    1. Among the reasons this may be so is that the simple future tense is more open-ended than the future perfect tense, the latter seeming to con­vey a sense of closure and a focus on specific events, which is unlike the sim­ple future tense in which anything is possible (Weick 1979, pp. 198-99). It is well to note that although Weick did not explicitly frame his argument in terms of metaphor, it is really another example of the past-as-metaphor-for- the-future idea developed in this chapter, albeit a more precise manifestation of it. The precision comes in Weick’s conclusion that some futures are more like the past, are more similar to it than others. In his argument, the future described in future perfect terms is more similar to the past than the future de­scribed in simple future terms.

      future perfect tense appears to generate a sense of focus and closure while simple future tense is more open-ended.

      Weick theorizes that future perfect tense casts the description of a future event in more detail.

    2. To consider the future, it may help to treat it like the past, that is, as ifit had already happened. This is the premise Weick proposed in his discussion of fu­ture perfect thinking (1979, pp. 195-200). Future perfect thinking is a gram­matical prescription instructing managers and planners and all who consider the future to do so in the future perfect tense. Thus rather than the simple fu­ture tense as used in a statement like “We shall overcome,” the future perfect128Eternal Horizonstense would have us say, “We shall have overcome.” Alfred Schutz believed that the “planned act bears the temporal character of pastness' (Schutzs emphasis), be­cause the actor projects the act as completed and in the past, a paradox that places the act in both the past and the future at the same time, something the future perfect tense makes possible (1967, p. 61). These were insights that Weick both noted (1979, p. 198) and built upon to explain why future perfect thinking may make it easier to envision possible futures.

      Interesting proposal to use future perfect tense to envision the future.

      is that happening to an extent with the multiple uses/tenses of "update" in the SBTF transcripts?

    1. synge

      This would have been pronounced "sin-gay", as it was divided into two syllables instead of one.

    1. Becauseでしょう indicates guess, it can be used for current events and past events that we are not certain.

      This is like the subjunctive in English and Spanish, but instead uses a form or the copula, です, instead of conjugating the verb into another form.
