|It has long been known that...
||I haven't bothered to look up the original reference|
|...of great theoretical and practical importance
||...interesting to me|
|While it has not been possible to provide definite answers to these questions.
||The experiments didn't work out, but I figured I could at least get a publication out of it.|
|The W-Pb system was chosen as especially suitable to show the predicted behavior...
||The fellow in the next lab had some already made up|
Very high purity...
Extremely high purity...
||Composition unknown except for the exaggerated claims of the supplier
|A fiducial reference line...
|Three of the samples were chosen for detailed study...
||The results of the others didn't make sense and were ignored..
|...handled with extreme care during
||...not dropped on the floor
|Typical results are shown...
||The best results are shown...
|Although some detail has been lost in reproduction, it is clear from the original micrograph that...
||It is impossible to tell from the micrograph
|Presumably at longer times...
||I didn't take the time to find out
|The agreement with the predicted curve is excellent
|...as good as could be expected
|These results will be reported at a later date
||I might get around to this sometime
|The most reliable values are those of Jones
||He was a student of mine
|It is suggested that...
It is believed that...
It may be that...
|It is generally believed that....
||I have such a good objection to this answer that I shall now raise it.
|It is clear that much additional work will be required before a complete understanding...
||I don't understand it
|Unfortunately, a quantitative theory to account for these effects has not been formulated
||Neither does anybody else
|Correct within an order of magnitude
|It is to be hoped that this work will stimulate further work in the field
||This paper isn't very good but neither are any of the others on this miserable subject
|Thanks are due to Joe Glotz for assistance with the experiments and to John Doe for valuable discussions.
||Glotz did the work and Doe explained what it meant.
