Is it uncommen to use punctuation in Turkish?
It's unnecessary in this sentence.
Why is: "In the case of an emergency, call the police." wrong?
I just isn't idiomatic English :) We just say "In case of an emergency" without the "the"
Had not thought of it that way. Indeed the former seems to be 10 times as common. My bad.
Thanks for the help though. I should have thought of it that way.
If you use an adjective, it does sound fine to include "the." "In the rare case of an emergency..." for example. Without the adjective, it is just a little funky. I wish I knew why! :D
