Before I knew only two patterns of ‘right use’ but not limited to:
- include, but not <be> limited to, ….
For example : "Examples of <smth.> include, but are not limited to, the following: … "
2. including, but not limited to, ….
Right now I’m reading the phrase:
“Anomalies may be found during, but not limited to, the review, test, analysis, compilation, or use of software products or applicable documentation.”
I am sure it is the correct use, as this is one of the international (IEEE) professional standards (of the American origin :). )
But from here I see that but not limited to can be used much more easy and free – even in the formal texts.
Could you give a couple of examples of using but not (be) limited to (without include/including :)) to make me a bit more fluent with the phrase?
