possessives: nouns
possessives: adjectives

Hi.
Is Progressive same as Continuoues?

They say that progressive is used in American English while Continuoues is used in British English.

Please clarify.

Thanks

Hello Sad,

Both progressive and continuous are used interchangeably in British English. Progressive is the older, more traditional form; continuous has come into use more recently. I'm from the UK and I'm not sure about typical US usage, I'm afraid.

Hello Nabul,

There is no problem that I am aware of. Are you having trouble accessing the site?

Hi.
I've got one question. Is this title correct?
'The Saint Apostle Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians'
Or:
' The Epistle of Saint Apostle to the Ephesians'.
As far as I can remember, we use possessive 's for people. But there are some cases in which we can use 'of'...
Also, I thought that I could use some synonims: disciple=apostle; epistle=letter.
Which is the appropriate title when it comes to academic writing?
Thank you.
