Hi all,

I've seen the following sentence on the net. Then I was thinking.. whether the usage of "you" is correct or not? If I were to write that sentence, I'd have written "your" .

Since you are based in the United States, if you volume has been over $1,000 a month , this is what i would suggest. ( this is what I saw on the Net)

** you volume or "your" volume ?

Thanks.

Hi,

Grammar clearly requires 'your', although 'your volume' is not totally clear in meaning without a bit more context.

Did they really write a lower-case i? That makes me sad.Emotion: sad

Best wishes, Clive
Just a note: My most frequent typo is to write "you" for "your." I do it very, very often, and although I try to proofread for it, my eye "knows" what it's supposed to see, so sometimes I gloss right over it.

Thank you Clive and Grammar Geek. I guess it's probably typo.. But, honestly, I've really seen a lot of such mistakes.

I don't understand what do you mean by "lower-case i" ?

Sorry.
Hello, Starget, and welcome to the forums! Emotion: smile

'i' is lower case (not in capital letters), and 'I' is not.

Hi,

Instead of a lower-case i, you could call it a small i.

Instead of an upper-case I, you could call it a big I.

Argh, I think I understand what you meant now.. Very sorry. Emotion: stick out tongue

The answer to your question is >> Yes, they wrote a lower-case i. I just copy and paste it here.
