I keep this brief and to the point.
Yesterday, I created a new tag distance-expression and only remembered to write a short description when I read this reminder: When you make a new tag, please write a description
So far, the distance-expression tag has only four questions, but before I go on a tagging spree and track down other questions that fit this tag, I would like to ask the community for advice.
- Is there a better known, or more precise term that should be used?
In the very short description, distance expressions are also called impersonal passive, but maybe it should be changed to passive reporting verbs? Which name would be easier for users and learners alike?
Should the tag be renamed distancing-expressions? I think that it is a more accurate term, but maybe it's not the best or the most useful.
Which synonyms could be added?
