Only a fortunate break in the chain of events prevented an injury, fatality or damage; in other words, a miss that was nonetheless very near.

Some of you AC and poster keep saying that a near miss is incorrect english.

this is infact a lie... near miss is the exact term you would use when describing something that almost hit.

"Miss"(the shot) is the noun here and "Near" is the adj describing the miss,, "It was a NEAR miss."

Those that talk about near hit????
lets see
"it was a near hit." that doesn't make any sense as how can you hit a target or have a hit and it is near.... these word dont add up to describe the function of the meaning.

if you reworded the sentence
"it was nearly a hit"

Now your cooking with gas. english tards ring in, also you math tards too that think they figured this out.

Think of it like this, and probably where the saying came from cause this is how we did it in training.

example of shooting and your spotter calling out your shots...
miss...Miss...Hit...Near miss..hit.. miss.. near miss
Miss = way off no idea no sight.
Hit = Target hit
Near Miss = a miss that was near to a hit, seen by spotter and close

Near Hit = nobody says this??? (ok, some may, but its not correct because it leads to miscommunications)
(you wouldn't say nearly a hit, as that gets confusing between a hit and a miss)

Now STFU and use the correct terms and stop trying to be a grammar tard confusing everyone claiming to be correct when you are wrong


Near miss = Miss that is a close call.

bsflag

It's nonnegative, not non-negative.

Also, why didn't the OP capitalize `english'?
