Parlez-vous Engineer?

Some gems I found while reading project specifications today.

" Words implied, but not stated, shall be inferred, as the sense requires."

" Singular words shall be interpreted as plural, and plural words shall be interpreted as singular where applicable ..."

"Imperative mood and streamlined language are generally used in the Specifications. Occasionally, the indicative or subjunctive mood may be used...."

Get out of here with the imperative mood! Although, if I had studied more in school, I probably would understand the subjunctive mood. I prefer the indicative mood, myself.
