Yeah, I had always suspected such :D

Again I suspected this.
However, oddly, you identified your own gender, but for Corinna, you
merely noted that by custom,
that name is assigned to females. You did not state the fairly obvious,
but never-the-less important fact
that this Corinna is indeed female.
No, you've misread how this slightly complicated english language
construction is meant to be read:
No I did not. I am a native English speaker. The problem is that that
sentence is ambigious, and does parse either way. Since the sentence is not
absurd when parsed without implicit repetition (when parsed as I did for
pointing out the problem), then the use of an abigious structure causes a
major problem. So do not construct futher sentences in that fashion unless
it is evident that the simplier parsing is almost certainly incorrect as the
resulting meaning would be rediculous.
