Hi all,

I find these two sentences on http://www.wired.com and I think these are incorrect:

1. If pain researchers would adopt this, we could get more accurate translations [of drug effectiveness] to humans.

As per Manhattan SC, in the IF clause, presence of Would/Could shows incorrect usage.

2. While Eckman didn’t do research on pain expressions, the mouse grimace scale beefs up his argument that facial expressions are not only ubiquitous across human cultures, but also all mammals.

In (2), I think the construction ...not only ubiquitous across human cultures, but also all mammals...is Incorrect.

Yes, you see this kind of stuff all the time.

Nice examples. Should the correction be:

1. If pain researchers adopt this, we will/can get more accurate translations [of drug effectiveness] to humans.

2. While Eckman didn’t do research on pain expressions, the mouse grimace scale beefs up his argument that facial expressions are ubiquitous across not only human cultures, but also all mammals.

IMO:

2. While Eckman didn’t do research on pain expressions, the mouse grimace scale beefs up his argument that facial expressions are ubiquitous not only across human cultures, but also across all mammals.
