No, I didn't look it up, because I don't have a good English grammar text; my explanation would certainly have been more elegant if I was borrowing from a book.
I'm really glad you allowed yourself to learn something from this.
I know that you think you have a superior knowledge of the mechanics of the English language to most (or is it all?)native speakers; and in fact, I would guess that you do have to probably better than 50%.
However, you would do yourself a great service by understanding that not all native speakers pay so little attention to their own language, and not everyone is less clever than yourself, and many of those have been alive and reading and learning longer than you have and thusly have collected more knowledge.
What is surprising or diminishing about that?
The same goes for me, and I learn anytime and anywhere I can.
