|Assunto:||systematic or systematical?|
1) In the sentence: "Eu fiz uma revisão systemática no texto", should I say "systematic review" or "systematical review". I always have problems with "ic" and "ical". I know there is a difference, but to know it?
I'd choose "systematic" too. The word "systematical" is not common in English. Most dictionaries not even include it. The difference between -ic and -ical suffixes is not clear. It depends a lot on the word. Have a look at some examples:
I don't think so. "Mr" and "Dr" are mostly used with surnames. If you know the person well enough to call him/her by the first name, then there is no point in using "Mr" or "Dr". If you don't feel intimate enough to call the person by the first name (and don't know his/her last name either), you can say just "Sir" or "Madam".
