We would very much like to know whether readers consider the sentence in the title to this post problematic or not. It is of course – as aficionados will immediately recognise – from the Startrek trailer, and the construction in question is known as a split infinitive.
And what about the following message, which pops up every time you leave Microsoft Office Outlook:
What other usage problems do you find problematical? In English or in your own language if you are not a native speaker of English? If you are insecure about a particular usage feature, in English or any other language, where do you turn for guidance? Do you own a usage guide, for instance, and if so which one, or do you merely consult the internet? And if so, which websites?
And how do non-native speakers of English feel about this when they are speaking or writing English? Are you aware of any potential usage problems in English? And, again, where would you turn for guidance?
