Thought groups question - Nov 22, 2017 #1 (permalink) Wed Nov 22, 2017 20:22 pm   Thought groups question - Nov 22, 2017
 

Hi,

Am I dividing the following sentences in acceptable thought groups? The slash mark (/) indicates a momentary pause taken by native speakers.

1. There is / an apparently inexorable trend toward making/ intellectual property rights even longer and broader.

2. ...but the fax machine is now close to / being a museum piece.

3. Inflation statistics tells us that / $70K today is worth much less/ than $70K in 1900.


Thanks.

These all sound correct to me.
