About me

僕は61歳のアメリカ人です。数学の教授で、それからプログラマーでした。今はアルバイトだけしています。各国の音楽と文芸が好きです。特に伝統的な音楽が大好きです。リコーダーでバロック音楽と民俗音楽を吹きます。書くことも好きです。
I'm a 61-year-old American. I was a mathematics professor, and then a programmer. Now I only do part time work. I like music and literature from various different countries. I am especially fond of traditional music. I play Baroque music and folk music on the recorder. I also like to write.

添削の形式 (Correction Conventions and Format)

Briefly, I use red when some change is necessary, and blue to indicate an optional change.

I indicate a change in red when the sentence is simply incorrect as it stands and something must be changed. It may be just be a word which is misspelled, in which case I highlight the changes in red, or an error in grammar or word choice, in which case I replace the incorrect words and type the replacement words in red. I also cross out words which must be omitted using red. The problem with just crossing out letters without changing the color is that it is sometimes very hard to see when a single letter has been crossed out.

I use blue when what I am replacing is correct, but when I think a change makes the sentence a lot more natural.

Finally, I suggest some alternative ways of writing parts of the sentence, when there are several ways which I think are more or less equally good. I also do this when I think the sentence was pretty good as it was written, and I just want the writer to be aware of other choices he or she might have made. In these alternative phrases I usually highlight the changed words in blue to make it easy to see what phrases I am suggesting as alternatives. The list of alternatives is enclosed in square brackets: [...] .
