|Summary||0008664: "A image" and "a ... mechanisms" in item description|
|Description||I have encrusted some furniture with granite which was cut into cushion cabochons. The description of the final item (<<*mica mechanisms*>>) is a bit weird, though:|
"This is a superior quality mica mechanisms. On the item is a image of a cushion cabochon in granite by Onul Morulunal."
I see three issues with it:
# a ... mechanisms - pick either "a" or plural (but that's in all descriptions of mechanisms, it seems)
# a image - "an"
# "a(n) image of a cushion cabochon in granite" - Shouldn't it be rather something like "a(n) image of (_something_) (made from/in) cushion granite cabochon"? How can you make an image of granite cabochons with granite cabochons?
|Steps To Reproduce||Get (mine) granite (or also other stone?)|
Get (make) mechanisms
(Make storage near Jeweler's workshop with those mechanisms)
Encrust furniture with granite

|Why couldn't it be a an image of a different granite cabochon?|
|I think so, too: art images can be of a wide variety of common objects, pretty much anything from smooth pebbles to crossbow bolts, and also cut gems. Images of the latter only specify the cut type (rose cut, trillion cut, cushion cabochon...). That the dwarf chose to use cushion cabochons to make a picture of one is just a funny coincidence.|
Oh so it could have been, say, "a(n) image of rectangle cabochon in granite" ... made from "cushion granite cabochon" as well? DF semirandom generator of art images strikes back.
So after encrusting, is it impossible to find out from which type of cut (round cabochons, cushion cabochons...) that encrusting was done with because there is now only material ("in granite") and not the type of cut used?
|I'm pretty sure that's the case, yeah. That seems to answer it, so I'm resolving this, but feel free to reopen if there's anything else.|
OK, the third part was answered. Thanks.
But what about those two grammar bugs, 1) either "a" or plural and 2) "a" instead of "an"? Note the list in the end of description.
|Yeah, those two are incorrect. I added an "a" in the third one (before "cushion") to match the full description.|
