Hello all! The title of this post basically asks it all. How would you go about properly writing specific titles of fields properly? The real usage for this actually has specific names of the fields, and they are meant to be mentioned by name (meaning they aren't just general terms). Here is a basic example of a form with fields I have found on the Internet (with the field names being "Vendor", "Quantity", "Amount", etc. Do the field names like Vendor, Quantity, etc. get italicized, or placed in quotation marks, if referring to them by name?

I'd appreciate it if someone would answer my question about the following sentence. Thanks in advance. “building” means any structure intended for lodging persons, sheltering animals or storing things and equipped or intended to be equipped with a heating system or a cooling system, except a farm building intended for sheltering animals or storing things; “contractor” means a person who organizes or coordinates the construction of a building by persons under his authority or by subcontractors; “public building” means --------- (Source google search) Is "the" (in "the construction of a building by persons under his authority or by subcontractors") absolutely necessary? If there isn't "by persons under his authority or by subcontractors", "is "construction" instead of "the construction" OK?

Hello, What nuances do you feel between: - "I guess you will be feeling thirsty after working in the sun." and "I guess you'll feel thirsty after working in the sun"? I think I'd go with the second". - "He's going to stay with his friends in Austria" and "He will be staying with his friends in Austria"? Both work for me. I even think that "will" could be used here, but these two sound better to me. Do the following sentences sound fine to you? Here they are: - Are they going to come to the party tonight? - Will they come to the party tonight? They sound odd to me for some reason, I don't know why.
