et cetera, et cetera 英文人行道
Notes of a word-watcher, Hanching Chung. A first port of call for English learning.
The last sort I shall mention are
-- mere word-catchers, fellows that pick out a word in a sentence and a sentence in a volume, and tell you it is wrong.
These erudite persons constantly find out by anticipation that you are deficient in the smallest things -- that you cannot spell certain words or join the
case and the verb together, because to do this is the height of their own ambition, and of course they must set you down lower than their opinion of themselves.
