I could realize I`ve committed lots of mistakes, but lots of doubts came up too. So, please, I would appreciate if you could clarify for me.
The owners of a kindergarten were accused of having committed sexual abuse against some children, and then, all the media behaved biasedly convicting them beforehand, without any care.
.. the school had to be immediately closed amid heated popular reaction.
1) "committed sexual abuse against some children">>>Here you prefered "abuse on". Is against wrong?
2) "the media behaved biasedly ">>> I realized that there is no word "biasedly", so, I shoud have used other words such as "biased with" or "with partiality".
3)" convicting them beforehand" >>>beforehand seems to be a mistake. I should have used the verb "prejudge".
4) " heated popular reaction" >>> Is "heated" also a collocation mistake? Could you suggest another word, please?
Then, partially the phrase should be like: "the media behaved with bias prejudging them, without any care."
I hope I am not bothering you with so many questions..
Hi Ailime,First, you are not a bother
, if I did not want to help I would not be on the forum.
1. I should have used against
as it the more accurately discriptive word, sorry that was my error.
2. The proper words would be biased, or partiality either would be correct depending on the contex and construction.
3. Where I used convicting them in the "court of public opinion"
that is an idiom meaning to prejudge in public opinion.
4. I omitted that thought, but prefer the phrase "public outrage"
as opposed to heated poplular reaction.
