Re:New member

Since you mentioned the author's choice, does this compositional technique have implications for aesthetics? If so, have you considered researching concepts of creative process?<br />Welcome to the forum.<br />

Thank you. Sorry, I was being thick. Of course it's not accusative because there is no verb!
