Reply to "Clause Ordering"

(6) is, by far, the worst of all, because both participial clauses ("my fingers aching" an absolute one) are adjacent to each other. Such juxtaposition is not allowed.

- Although my fingers hurt, I kept on writing the draft because I had little time left for submitting/to submit it. (much better than "for its submission")

Hi, Gustavo,

Thanks a lot for the reply. However, I need a little more on 'such juxtaposition is not allowed', besides needing help to understand why '"for its submission"' is a less preferable option. Would you kindly help me?

Thanks.

PS: My Bearing/Bore post may also need some kind attention.
