Bad News Eradicator: Volume #2 Worksheet

Half of the negatives below have been translated. Keep in mind that there are at least four positive, alternative ways to say what the negative examples fail to say. Please feel free to send Jim Lukaszewski your translations for the remaining examples. He would love to comment and share additional versions. The blank lines are there for you to replace and begin collecting your own positive translations. Feel free to send those you are having difficulty translating to Jim Lukaszewski who will respond immediately with positive alternatives to be considered.

Email questions, observations, examples to, subject line “Bad News Eradicator Questions”.
