Which of these two phrases is right? Do we say ‘in my opinion’ or ‘from my opinion’?
Let us first take a look at what the word ‘opinion’ means. An opinion can be defined as someone’s ideas or beliefs about a particular issue. It can also be said to be a professional person’s or an expert’s judgment or advice on a particular issue. So you can say something like this: “Have you sought the lawyer’s opinion about this?”
To answer the question of whether to say ‘in my opinion’ or ‘from my opinion’, it is not right to say ‘from my opinion’. We always say ‘in my opinion’.
You are watching: On my opinion
So you can have examples like the following:
In my opinion, corrupt government officials should be prosecuted.
The President, in his opinion said that he felt that racism was reducing in the country.
It is sad, in my opinion, that people don’t care about the plights of children anymore.
Is it right to say ‘According to someone’s opinion’?
This is one of the most common mistakes in English that a lot of people commit. It is totally wrong to say ‘according to someone’s opinion’. Instead of saying that you should say: “According to someone” or “In someone’s opinion”.
A statement like this is therefore WRONG: According to John’s opinion, the building must be demolished.
But you can say the correct versions which are as follows:
In John’s opinion, the building must be demolished.
According to John, the building must be demolished.
