I'd be grateful if you could respond with your introspective judgements on
the function of two sentences (unfortunately, the context, or more co-text,
is not available):
(1) If they want others to do it, I'll advise against their having children.
(2) If they want others to do it, I'd advise against their having children.
Please select one of the following:
A. Both sentences function as advice
B. Only sentence (1) functions as advice
C. Only sentence (2) functions as advice
D. Neither sentence functions as advice
E. I cannot tell out of context
Could you also clarify if you would describe yourself as a native speaker
or non-native speaker of English?
Of course, any other comments are more than welcome.
Please respond directly to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) - I will post
a summary when I've collated all responses.
