Brilliant deduction Mr Holmes!
Well, he buys a lot of eggs. Either for fancy baking, or to mix pigment with the whites...
Why is either...or wrong here? Does anyone know?
Think that the Latin would have to be aut pistor aut pictor for 'either ... or ...'
I can't believe I've got this far without "or" before.
Why not: "he is baker or painter"? What's wrong with this translation?
In English, in most cases, a determiner is required before a noun.
Not the second one, though. I wrote "He is a baker or painter." That's fine but was marked wrong
Bakers and painters are so similar they're hard to tell apart...
