|Summary||0000185: Multi-word verbs are not recognised in forms using an auxiliary|
|Description||I7 doesn't like how the definition in the example source is worded:|
Problem. You gave as a definition 'a thing is popular if it is really liked by all people': but that condition makes no sense to me, although the preamble to the definition was properly written. There must be something wrong after 'if'.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
Home is a room.
Liking relates various people to various things.
The verb to really like (he really likes, they really like, he really liked, it is really liked, he is
really liking) implies the liking relation.
Definition: a thing is popular if it is really liked by all people.
|Additional Information||The same source compiles if we shorten the verb to just 'like', and likewise if we rephrase the definition as 'if all people really like it'. The forms which don't work are the ones that use an auxiliary verb:|
X is/was/etc. really liked by Y
X is/was/etc. really liking Y
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(serious) Compiler rejects valid code|
