find a specific context in which it fits - there's always one out there

 

I think the earlier comment related to the petulant claim that the 'ugly' example was somehow superior to the natural, mother-tongue idiomatic version.

 

No one is suggesting that there is not a context in which each of the available structure in the language can be appropriately used, but that, rather, in the general context that was given a natural use of language is less awkward and is more refined

 

or does one insist on 'bloodimindedness'?
