  1. I got 6 of these correct – but not the ones on Serbia and Paul Newman.

    I had to look up “Daltonist”, as I wondered why being a follower of the ideas of John Dalton – which is what I had taken the word to mean – would have the effect you describe. A better way of phrasing it would have been “he suffered from Daltonism” or “he was colour-blind”.

    I reckon that the question about the Serbian cemetery – informative though it is – hardly counts as general knowledge! What is the full story about the name derivation?

    • I have just checked this story. The name (which incidentally is Zeitenlik) derives from a Turkish word meaning “olive”, because the site was originally an olive plantation. If oil was sold there it had to be olive oil, not motor fuel!

      • Zeitinlik is a Turkish word and indicates the place where the oil for sale was sold, not the engine oil.
        I accept your remark that the matter does not fall within the general culture.OK.
        Consider yourself 6/7
        One knows what Daltonism is.
        As for Daltonism, if I were an Englishman like you and I probably wouldn’t describe how you suggested: A better way of phrasing it would have been “he lost from Daltonism” or “he was color-blind”.
        You see, I’m not English, I’m using a text editor.
        it is called
        https://www.grammarly.com
        You can try it in the texts you posted.
        I am and I found you to be wrong as an Englishman.
        But I’ve never written it to you before.
        Now I am.

        • I do appreciate the difficulty, and also the efforts that I know you go to in order to make your contributions to Virily in what is a foreign language for you.

          I hope you don’t mind the occasional correction – it is only offered as a help to you so that you can pick up lots of hints about how we native speakers use the language.

          As for grammarly.com, I am not convinced by it in all circumstances. For one thing, i speak and write British English, and grammarly is an American product. There are many differences between the colloquial English of different parts of the English-speaking world.

          Merry Christmas, Robin!
