I find it incredible difficult to form a proper sentence expressing a very simple idea.
The text I am translating deals with valuing a building using the depreciated replacement cost method.
Under this method, you depreciate the building due to age (that isn't correct English either, is it?)
I want to express the simple idea that the depreciation due to age is applied in a linear fashion, without sounding stupid.
Can you make a sentence using the three words "linear, depreciation, age"?
