dear sirs & Madams

1- Is this sentense correct: "She is shy but she is not foolish."

and what about this one: "She is shy but not foolish."

2- One of my friends suggested that the use of 'but', here, was wrong:

"She is shy but wise."

According to him, this shows that 'a shy' is considered normally foolish. And this is not a universal truth.
Does my sentense show this (hidden) meaning?

3- Please correct any other grammatical mistakes where ever you find (them).

Lrk2006dear sirs & Madams - Dear everyone/Dear all would be fine. If you have to use the plural of "Madam", then it is best to use "Mesdames" (Madams has a particular connotation in English)


1- Is this sentence correct: "She is shy but she is not foolish."

and what about this one: "She is shy but not foolish." Both are fine.

2- One of my friends suggested that the use of 'but' here was wrong: commas not needed

"She is shy but wise."

According to him, this shows that 'a shy person' is considered normally foolish. And this is not a universal truth.
Does my sentence show this (hidden) meaning? I don't read it as having a hidden meaning, but maybe it depends on who is reading the sentence. Perhaps "sensible" would be better after "but". "She is shy and yet wise" would be a good alternative.

3- Please correct any other grammatical mistakes where ever you find them.

Sending a 'minor' (beginner in English) to an Adult (experts) zone is no rudeness. But you may call it a bit injustice. so i said "please be kind."

thanx anyway. if i stay in touch with 'englishforums', that zone is not far away.
Anyway LRK I know it will not take long time.
