For this rulebreaker, the primary objective is to get me to type the phrase below, but someone will also need to explain the rule because I think it might be possible to meet the primary objective without actually fully understanding the rule. The phrase you need to get me to type is:

"Doctor Livingstone, I presume?"

Bob he like?
Sally she like?
Mark they like?
Steve them like?

i'm guessing those are all going to be "Livingstone I presume" -- Proper Noun = Livingstone, pronoun=I, and like(eh?) = Presume. Close?

i'm guessing those are all going to be "Livingstone I presume" --
Proper Noun = Livingstone 99% correct
pronoun=I 99% Correct
like(eh?) = Presume well, yes, the word "like" does always = presume when following the rule, but that is not the actual rule, just a result of it.

Professor Bob he like? Doctor Livingstone, I presume?

Doctor Livingstone I presume? (heh) CA
this CA is very much related to why your previous guesses were 99% correct ...

So within the categories used to create the answer, the words "Doctor", "Livingstone", "I", and "Presume" were all CA, correct?

So we've got proper nouns for Livingstone, and pronouns for I...verbs for "presume"? And professions for "doctor"?

So within the categories used to create the answer, the words "Doctor", "Livingstone", "I", and "Presume" were all CA, correct? right. I was originally going to have them count just like other words in their categories, but then I had this great fear that someone was going to start off by repeating my puzzle statement back to me near the beginning of the puzzle. It would have been funny, but I think it would have also thrown off the puzzle.

So we've got proper nouns for Livingstone, Correct
and pronouns for I Correct
...verbs for "presume"? well, some verbs...
And professions for "doctor"? Correct

"Professor Bob he like"? Doctor Livingstone I presume
I see that you're working on punctuation here. So I guess that now it's confession time. I originally did have a rule in my head for punctuation, but I, um, forgot to follow it. So don't worry about the punctuation.

Verbs that are solo actions? That involve thought?

Action verbs in general?

\i:Verbs that are solo actions? they are all solo actions, I suppose, but not all solo actions would apply
That involve thought? yes! I defined it as "verbs that take place within one's head, without action", but yes.
Action verbs in general? Quite the opposite}

**SPOILER**
Reading across from left to right in a question, I typed "Doctor" for each word that I encountered that represented a profession, "Livingstone" for every proper noun, "I" for every pronoun, and "presume" for every verb that occurs within one's head without physical action. The exceptions to the rule were, of course, "doctor," "Livingstone," "I," and "presume," to avoid the very likely possibility of me having to parrot back answers to people asking me questions about the good Doctor Livingstone. As luck would have it, Kaylee started off with the very fitting (in terms of repetition of certain types of words) tale of Sam-I-am instead, and no one asked me questions about the dear doctor at all, so it turned out to be a non-issue.


Thanks for playing =)
