    I'm doing the King Lear coursework, but my questions are more general.

    I've heard that they don't like use of 'e.g.' and 'i.e.' - is this true? Is it just that they prefer you not to use them, or will you actually lose marks for including them?

    I ask because I'm desperate to get my word count down as much as possible. Unless the 4000 word limit isn't non-negotiable as my teacher says it is?
“Yanny” or “Laurel”
