Interesting Facts about Death




衷心建議, 與別人說理辯論時, 請查字典, 文法書, 或和語言相關之參考書籍. 再來可參考英文書籍,新聞,雜誌,或英語為母語人士的用法

請不要常拿Google有多少例來辯證. 因為那牽扯到Mega-analysis和Database使用的嚴謹性. 首先要設定 sampling 的criteria來確認例子出處的品質及可靠度,再來用不是很簡單的統計學方法做統計,分析,最後做結論. 那通常是很專業的人在寫論文或報告時才會去做的,因為那很花時間與精力.

若經由前述的方法已有答案,真的請不要常拿Google有多少例來辯證,因為真的會誤導別人,尤其是學習者. 在很少的情況下,前述的方法找不到到答案時,再搜尋Google做Mega-analysis吧!但請記得用嚴謹的態度及方法. Google很重要也很好用,但那是找資料用的,對一般人而言是不適合做Mega-analysis的.
