Sorry, which case do you mean Blue?
I'm sorry for that. ^^
I mean that when we want to compair between 3 or more things, which preposition can we use.
We can use among if we are talking about more things as a group.
Please share the sweets among the students.
We should use between if we are naming each individual thing.
Please share the sweets between Bob, Steve, Lisa and Tracy.
The sentence is correct but it is ambiguous. To talk about this situation it would be better to say A cop just knocked on my door and told me that my dogs were chasing cyclists. Now the ambiguity is gone, and the sentence is no longer humorous! Ambiguous sentences are something we should try to avoid when communicating.
You're welcome Vero. You have a very good understanding of the English language.
It's correct to call them expatriate worker - or expat for short. It's also fine to say my boss is Australian if someone asks. If you are talking to them directly them you should call them by their name. :)
Teacher I've got question!! LOL
I found this sentence.
'None of the people invited to the party can come.'
it has a passive meaning, right? but my question is, can I said: "None of the people are invited to the party can come" ???
if yes, then when can we possibly get rid 'to be' from the passive sentence??? would it change the meaning of the sentence???
Thank you very much Teacher :D
Nice to hear from you! I hope things are going well for you. :)
This sentence is informal. The formal version of the sentence would be - None of the people that have been invited to the party can come. The meaning of the sentence is the same in both examples.
Another question Teacher :)
Could you please explain what exactly the meaning of the sentence :
"The window has NOW been repaired"
I'm not sure I get it right. does it mean that the window has been repaired? or does it mean currently the window are being repaired?? or or does it mean the window has just been repaired??
This sentence tells us that at some point in the past the window was not repaired - but at this present time NOW it is fixed. We are emphasizing that the action has finally been completed, perhaps after some delay or problem.
And... another question.. hehehehe
(sorry teacher, I'm working with my grammar book now and just posting right away the question I've just found because I'm afraid I'm going to forget it before I ask you. lol)
so, What about this sentence?
"He finds astronomy very interesting"
isn't it 'interesting' an adjective? then why there isn't any ' to be' before 'very'??? please explain Teacher. :D
