"independence of": John declares the independence of John Republic.
"independence from": The union, though weak and poor, managed to remain their independence from other big, influential interest groups.
Can you sense the difference there?
My sincere thanks to all you guys! I consulted some English lawyers and I think I embarrassed or amused them with this question. Quite delicate nuance between the two. Enlightened by your contributions, I feel like making more research in this regard and that's fun!
Thank you again!
True. That is subjunctive. I not a native English speaker. I learn English such that I know grammar.. Subjective is one of the most difficult parts of English to many non-native students....
