The usage of THOSE OF #1 (permalink) Sun Jun 04, 2006 10:59 am   The usage of THOSE OF
 

Hello! Is it Sunday? Oh my god! I wish
it would be Saturday!. Thanks in advance!

If you see something wrong in my writing, correct
me whenever you want. I will thank you!

Well... my question:

"The cries sound like THOSE OF a (=the cries of a)
baby asking for milk!"

Is the usage of "THOSE OF" correct here?
I have seen people using it but I don?t know
what is the correct way of using it?

Is it a "substitute" for a noun or something
that you said before?

Thanks a million!

Enjoy today!

Yes, that's exactly right, Jesus. "Those" can replace a noun that you've just mentioned and means basically the same thing as "the ones".

Thanks a million!

Enjoy today! Thanks! I'll do that!!
