Hi,

I don't think that the following sentence is correct which I found in news' headline.

''Saddam to be buried in insurgent stronghold of Ramadi instead of his native village of Awja.''

According to me correction sentence must be:

''Saddam is to be buried in insurgent stronghold of Ramadi instead of his native village of Awja.''

Is my suggestion correct? If not then please tell me the correct sentence and also give me reason for its correctness in grammatical terms. Thank you

Sincerely,

vijay

Yes, your sentence is correct, as would be "Saddam will be burried..."

Don't look at the headlines for examples of good grammar - headlines have their own rules, and you will be confused if you think that headlines are examples of standard English sentences.

As of 04/04/2018, can you please email me the Security Officers' timesheet?

is this sentence correct?

As of 04/04/2018, can you please email me the Security Officers' timesheet?

is this sentence correct?

No.

As of 04/04/2018, Do you mean you want the timesheet completed for the period ending 04/04, or do you mean you want the timesheet emailed on 04/04?

the Security Officers' timesheet sounds like more than one officer, but just one timesheet.

Say the Security Officers' timesheets or the Security Officer's timesheet

eg Can you please email me the Security Officer's timesheet for the period ending 04/04/2018?
