This message just in from Old Nitpicker, a friend from the west of Scotland who commands great respect for running speedy marathons at the age of sixty-five or, since he is a mathematician and computer expert, 1000001—which looks a lot older.
“I must pull you up on that – “The Telegraph quoted Charles as saying that The Killing is 'one of the only things we can agree on seeing together'. . . . . Either way, the sentence is not grammatical." Doesn’t conform to accepted English usage - fair enough. But nothing wrong grammatically. If you and I are stargazing in the twilight, I might well say, “Venus is one of the only things we can agree on seeing together.” (because with my poor eyesight I cannot discern any other stars) Old Nitpicker”
Yes, Comrade Nitpicker, you are right, but only in one sense. Let me give some examples:
“Can you see that star?”
“Yes, I can. I have been watching it for years and noticed how it changes positon with the seasons.”Or:
“Do you you see the television set in the corner?”
“Yes, that’s the one I watch the news on every night.”
“Do you see what I mean?”
“Yes, I do but don’t forget I am watching you closely.”
I could go on….
