Talk:par excellence

Return to "par excellence" page.

Quotes from translations are exceptionally poor examples of usage. We naturally care about the usage of those who produce significant literary monuments, but their influence in that respect is limited to their languages of composition; their translators have no such authority. —This comment was unsigned.

I agree with your second sentence, but not with your first. Minor English translations of major foreign works are neither better nor worse than minor English works. —RuakhTALK 14:41, 24 November 2010 (UTC)
