In one of the reviews I received from a journal on a paper I sent there, there was a complaint that the paper contained a lot of language mistakes, so serious, that they change meaning of phrases. But no examples of such mistakes were provided.
I am not claiming that language in the paper was perfect, though the paper had been reviewed before submission by four different people (PhD's) with a good level of English and also by a native English speaker (not a scientist though).
I am confused about this quite strong statement about the paper's language despite the reviewer having perfectly understood almost all the ideas in the paper.
Just wondering: is it really typical for reviewers to point out language mistakes in reviews in this way? a (P.S. Just in case, I am very grateful to the reviewer for his or her very valuable suggestions on other formal mistakes and for giving me some new ideas).
