I noticed that in writing I very often phrase questions in the following manner:
- Is there a setting for the time delay [in the app]?
- Is there a reference to Colonial influence in Australia [in a book]?
- Is there a shorter way to say this [a stated sentence]?
I am suspicious this phrasing is influenced by my non-English-native background. Are there "more native" ways to write these kind of questions?
If there are distinct British English and American English phrases, I'm more after the British English versions.
Many thanks for any pointers!
