Hi, Yes. No, it doesn't. Yes. Best wishes, Clive
just want to confirm is the same as '? I was listening to a radio program which teaches English last night, and the host said that 'The USA is comprised of 50 states' is wrong. You American don't use a passive pattern in this case. Don't you?

This is a usage note from the dictionary.com entry Comprise has had an interesting history of sense development. In addition to its original senses, dating from the 15th century, “to include” and “to consist of ” ( ), comprise has had since the late 18th century the meaning “to form or constitute” ( ). Since the late 19th century it has also been used in passive constructions with a sense synonymous with that of one of its original meanings “to consist of, be composed of ”: These later uses are often criticized, but they occur with increasing frequency even in formal speech and writing. And this is from Bartleby.com: If you follow the traditional rule, you say that the whole the parts and that the parts the whole. Thus you would say and (or or ) While writers often maintain this distinction, is increasingly used in place of especially in the passive: Don’t be surprised if this usage still elicits comments, however. In an earlier survey, a majority of the Usage Panel found this use of unacceptable. Sohere are still people like me know that "The commmittee comprises 8 people" is fine and don't object to "Eight people comprise the committee" but don't like "the committee is comprised of 8 people." Go figure.

No, Clive is actually incorrect. The only correct usage of the word "comprise" in the examples given is No. 3. See the dictionary definition:

Verb

That being said, there is apparently a large percentage of the world's English-speaking population that insists on using this incorrectly, i.e. "comprised of," as in No. 2 and No. 4 above. It appears that the incorrect usage has become common vernacular, but it is still wrong -- since "comprise" means "to be composed of," saying "comprised of" is like saying "The commitee is composed of of 8 members." That is simply bad grammar. No. 3 is the correct usage.
Hi, I enjoyed reading your comment. Let me just quote from my Canadian Oxford Paperback Dictionary on usage. Apparently, you are part of the 'some' and I am part of the 'many'. Best wishes, Clive
Sentence number three is the only one that is grammatically correct.

I'm pregnant with twins, a girl and a boy. My husband and I finally agreed on what we thought were the perfect names -- but someone just pointed out that the initials would be MF. I don't want to name them something they'll get picked on for, but we both really like these names and haven't come up with anything else. Are the initials worth worrying about?

My son's intials are CIA and I thought for sure it would ruin his life. But no one notices or cares. I told him that IF someone notices his initials are CIA then he can tell them "great now I have to kill you."

I definately wouldn't worry about that. It's too obscure to matter, and if they DID ever figure it out, they would be too old to care, and past the junior high teasing stage. If your kid's initials were going to be something like D.O.R.K., I would worry, but M.F.? Don't sweat it. :)

To know that your son's initials will be DIC and then to still give him them? Cruel. At work a lot of times we are referred to on reports or signoff on things with our initials. I used to work with a guy named Michael E. Nichols. He wasn't gay, but he was a little effeminate and people made a LOT of comments.

my Favorite uncle's name is Fernando Udan (FU) and now its the biggest joke for him. he moved to a small city and everyone knows him as FU and suprisingly enough this simply made him more confident in himself! its your choice and everyone will find something wrong in EVERY name you choose and kids are really good to point out anything they can to embarass or make fun of. IF you like it you should do it if not like my sister you may live and regret it!!!! :((
