    Hello dear Friends,

    Je vais essayer de ne pas me tromper dans les dates cette fois encore ... sigh! (Le pire étant que j'ai un calendrier spécial pour ces exercices Forum et que je le consulte et l'annote à chaque fois ... ) double sigh...
    Voici donc, à nouveau, mon élève qui fait appel à vous pour corriger ses insuffisances ou étourderies ... Il a beaucoup travaillé, mais a quand même oublié 15 fautes dans le texte qu'il nous livre. Il a, bien sûr, pu répéter une ou plusieurs erreurs de toute bonne foi ! (ne vous étonnez donc pas de trouver de nombreuses fautes ... )

    PLEASE, HELP my STUDENT! Ce texte contient de nombreuses fautes à corriger - en majuscules - Merci.

    Why do we always vote in general elections on Thursday?
    Since 1931, every general election has been held on Thursday – but this wasn't always the case.
    Until 1918, polling could have taken place over several days with there also having been examples of voting taking place on different days in different constituencies.
    Given that there is no official reason for why Thursday became the preferred day for election polling, we looked into the social and cultural factors that might be behind the decision.
    As well as general elections, bye-bye elections have by in large been held on Thursday since 1965. One notable exception to this was when the Scotch town of Hamilton held a bye-bye election on Wednesday so as not to interfere with the kick of the 1978 World Cup in Argentina the following day.
    The nation's love for the beautiful game is well-known, but not enough to stop general elections from being on Thursday. But is the reason for polling day being on Thursday due to another of the nation's favourite pastimes – a trip to the pub?
    Some people believe that Friday was seen as being unsuitable day for voting due to being payday, with people potentially too busy doing fun things such as socialising or visiting the pub to go and vote.
    As well as Friday, Sunday was not seen as viable option due to the fear that churchgoers might be swayed by what they heard of the pulpit.
    By choosing a midweek day, voters would be away of the influence of the pub or church. And with Thursday being a traditional market day, it was seen as being suitable due to people being able to pop in to their local polling station on the way into town.
    The idea of weekend voting was previously being criticised due to the cost of overtime for election staff, but some now see it as a viable option.
    Professor Ailsa Henderson from the University of Edinburgh thinks a week-end vote would appeal to a lot of people.
    “Allowing it on more than one day – where one is a weekday and one is on the week-end – you’ll probably maximise your turnout.”


    A difficult work? I hope not! a and the correction will be online on Wednesday, December 11th. (I've double-checked this time!)

    Why do we always vote in general elections on Thursday?

    Since 1931, every general election has been held on Thursday – but this HASN'T ALWAYS BEEN the case.

    Until 1918, polling could have taken place over several days with there also having been examples of voting taking place on different days in different constituencies.

    Given that there is no official reason WHY Thursday became the preferred day for election polling, we looked into the social and cultural factors WHICH /that might be behind the decision.

    As well as general elections, BY E - elections or BY-elections ( élection législative partielle) have by in large been held on Thursday since 1965.

    One notable exception to this , was when the Scotch town of Hamilton held a
    BYE -election on A Wednesday so as not to interfere with the kick OFF ( coup d'envoi) of the 1978 World Cup in Argentina the following day.(ok or the next day),

    The nation's love for the beautiful game is well-known, but not enough to stop general elections from being on A Thursday.

    Some people believe that BYE-elections ( élection législative partielle) have by in large been held on Thursday since 1965. with people potentially too busy doing WITH fun things such as socialising or visiting the pub to go TO THE POLLS

    As well as Friday, Sunday was not seen as viable option due to the fear that churchgoers might be swayed by what they heard FROM the pulpit.

    By choosing a midweek day, voters would be away FROM the influence of the pub or THE church. And with Thursday being a traditional market day, it was seen as being suitable due to people being able to pop in to their local polling station on the way into town.

    The idea of weekend voting was previously BEEN criticised due to the cost of overtime for election staff, but some now see it as a viable option.

    Professor Ailsa Henderson from the University of Edinburgh thinks a week-end vote would BE SUITABLE FOR/ a lot of people. (Appeal semble trop excessif dans ce texte)

    “Allowin/ PERMITTING g it on more than one day – where one is a weekday and one is on the week-end – you’ll probably maximise your turnout.”

    Hello Here4U
    Pour une fois, j'ai fait ma participation directement online : tu peux ainsi voir ma méthode de travail :
    J'analyse le texte petit à petit. Quand je ne suis pas sûr de moi, je fais une recherche dans des dictionnaires. Quand je vois que le mot ou l'expression est correcte, je la colorie en vert, comme ça, quand je relis le texte à la recherche d'autres erreurs, je n'y reviens plus.
    Quand c'est incorrect, je la mets en majuscule (et en bleu).
    Et quand je ne mets pas de couleur, c'est que je n'ai pas cherché (parce que je n'ai pas hésité)
    Donc les couleurs, c'est pour moi

    Hum ...

    Avec bien des difficultés, j'ai corrigé ton texte cet après midi ... En bleu, c'est faux et corrigé ? C'est ça ? Donc tu as "trouvé" 10 ou 11 fautes ? Tu faiblis, Max, tu faiblis ...
    (Sans plaisanter, je crois m'en être sortie ! ) Il y avait déjà Lucile qui aimait bien colorier (les tests à la "livraison"... ) maintenant, vous allez être deux ! Who's next?

    Oui, c'est bien ça, mais ça ne devrait pas te donner de travail supplémentaire
    La seule "subtilité (c'est encore pour moi), c'est que l'erreur qui a été répétée, je ne la colorie pas en bleu, mais je la mets en majuscule quand même (pour toi), afin de compter le nombre de fautes. Donc seulement 11. Les 4 restantes sont au-delà de mon niveau

    Hello dear here4u,
    Here is my try, ready to be corrected.

    Why do we always vote in general elections on A Thursday?
    Since 1931, every general election has been held on A Thursday – but this HASN’T always BEEN the case.
    Until 1918, polling could TAKE place over several days with there also having been examples of voting taking place on different days in different constituencies.

    The nation's love for the beautiful game is well-known, but not enough to stop general elections from being on A Thursday. But is the reason for polling day being on
    A Thursday due to another of the nation's favourite pastimes – a trip to the pub?

    Some people believe that Friday was seen as being AN unsuitable day for voting due to IT being payday, with people potentially too busy doing fun things such as socialising or visiting the pub to go and vote.
    As well as Friday, Sunday was not seen as viable option due to the fear that churchgoers might be swayed by what they heard FROM the pulpit.

    By choosing a midweek day, voters would be away FROM the influence of the pub or church. And with Thursday being a traditional market day, it was seen as being suitable due to people being able to pop INTO their local polling station on THEIR WAY BACK into town.
    The idea of weekend voting HAS previously BEEN criticised due to the cost of overtime for election staff, but some now see it as a viable option.
    Professor Ailsa Henderson from the University of Edinburgh thinks a week-end vote would appeal to a lot of people.
    “Allowing it on more than one day – where one is a weekday and one is AT (the) week-end – you’ll probably maximise your turnout.”

    I thank you very much for the nice exercise.
    I hope you have a great week.
    So long

    Hello, Dear Hardworkers!

    Voici votre correction, qui a réussi à se frayer un chemin à travers les embouteillages démentiels que nous supportons ici ... Un moment fatigant et stressant ...
    Merci et bravo à vous de votre participation, toujours compétente !
    Cependant, certains d'entre vous n'ont pas vu, je pense, "le piège" qui parsemait ce texte, et il sera alors important de revoir le point évoqué en "Remarques (1-4)". Après avoir bien regardé le lien donné, essayez de relire le texte en vous arrêtant sur chaque jour de la semaine. Contrairement aux expressions françaises, demandez-vous : "Est-ce un moment précis?", "Nous avons un singulier en français ("jeudi"/ le jeudi"/ "un jeudi"), mais l'action se passe-t-elle tous les jeudis? ou "un" jeudi précis ?" Vous verrez que ce n'est pas compliqué, mais que cela demande un tout petit peu d'attention, au début, avant de devenir un automatisme ...

    (1 et 4)Dans tout le texte, nous allons « jouer » (enfin, je pensais que c'était un "jeu"... Sorry!) avec les jours de la semaine et leur détermination (ou pas !). Jours de la semaine, précédés de «on» : On Monday= ce lundi là, dont il a été question il y a peu, ou le lundi qui vient. On Mondays= le lundi signifiant "les lundis" (tous les lundis). On a Monday= un lundi (un certain lundi qui a été ou sera précisé.) Les jours de la semaine prennent une majuscule en anglais.
    - « on »(US) weekends or « at »(GB) weekends.

    (3) «polling could take place»; simple passé = c'était une possibilité ; could have taken place= aurait signifié « aurait pu se tenir … », action passée qui n’avait pas eu lieu.
    (5) a by-election (UK)= (a bye-election) = Lien internet
    ; j'avais simplement mis "bye-bye-election" pour nous amuser ! (on s'amuse comme on peut ... )

    (6) The Scotch town : Lien internet
    => the Scottish town
    (7) the kick of the match; = "the kick off of the match"; kick off= coup d’envoi ; of the match…
    (8-9) Fridays were seen [ = le vendredi en général – signifiant « les vendredis » et nécessitant le verbe au pluriel.] as being an unsuitable day : ici, c’est « le vendredi » qui est « un » jour … pas évident, mais somme toute logique …

    hello comme j'avais dit que je commencerai à partir de as well as Fridays voici la phrase supplémentaire
    AS well as Fridays,Sundays were not seen as viable option due to the fear that churchgoers might be swayed by what they heard of the pulpit.
    De même que les vendredis,les dimanches n'étaient pas vus comme une option viable en raison de la crainte que les fidèles ne fussent influencés par ce qu'ils entendaient à la chaire.

    FINISHED

    Hello!
    Here's Part II:
    One notable exception to this was when the Scottish town of Hamilton held a by-election on a Wednesday so as not to interfere with the kick off of the 1978 World Cup in Argentina the following day.
    The nation's love for the beautiful game is well-known, but not enough to stop general elections from being on a Thursday. But is the reason for polling day being on a Thursday due to another of the nation's favourite pastimes – a trip to the pub?
    Some people believe that Fridays were seen as being an unsuitable day for voting due to it being payday, with people potentially too busy doing fun things such as socialising or visiting the pub to go and vote.
    As well as Fridays, Sundays were not seen as a viable option due to the fear that churchgoers might be swayed by what they heard from the pulpit.
    By choosing a midweek day, voters would be away from the influence of the pub or church.

    Une exception notable à cela fut lorsque la ville écossaise d'Hamilton organisa une élection partielle un mercredi pour ne pas interférer avec le coup d'envoi de la coupe du monde de 1978 en Argentine le lendemain.
    L'amour de la nation pour le football est bien connu, mais pas suffisant pour empêcher que des élections se tiennent un mardi. Mais la (véritable) raison pour que la journée électorale se situe un mardi n'est-elle pas due à un autre des passe-temps favoris de la nation : une virée au pub ?
    Des gens pensent qu'on considérait le vendredi comme une journée inappropriée pour une élection, étant un jour de paie avec potentiellement des gens trop occupés à faire des choses amusantes comme de la vie sociale ou se rendre au pub pour aller voter.
    Tout comme le vendredi, on ne considérait pas le dimanche comme une option viable en raison de la crainte que les pratiquants pussent être influencés par ce qu'ils entendaient de la chaire.
    En choisissant une journée au milieu de la semaine, les votants seraient loin de l'influence du pub ou de l'église.

    Hello, Dears!

    Here is your FOLLOW-UP-WORK: Un grand merci à nos TROIS SUPER VOLONTAIRES ...

    Why do we always vote in general elections on a Thursday?
    Since 1931, every general election has been held on a Thursday – but this hasn't always been the case.
    Until 1918, polling could take place over several days with there also having been examples of voting taking place on different days in different constituencies.
    Given that there is no official reason for why Thursdays became the preferred day for election polling, we looked into the social and cultural factors that might be behind the decision.
    As well as general elections, by-elections have by and large * been held on Thursday since 1965. /// END OF PART 1 ///

    Pourquoi votons-nous toujours aux élections générales un jeudi ?
    Depuis 1931, toutes les élections générales ont eu lieu un jeudi- mais cela n'a pas toujours été le cas.

    Étant donné qu'il n'y a aucune raison officielle pour laquelle les jeudis sont est devenus le jour préféré pour les sondages électoraux, nous avons examiné les facteurs sociaux et culturels qui pourraient être à l'origine de la décision.
