English
#1 is correct. The principal parts of "to get" are get, got, gotten. #s 3-6 are all correct and are interchangeable! Nice!

English
I disagree somewhat. I can't say that Anonymous is wrong, but I think both sentences can mean that "I" can see "her" more often.

English
Ariel calls Prospero 'Master'. <~~Notice the changes I made? 3. Ariel puts Alonso's ship in one of the island's ports. 4. Alonso, Sebastian, and Gonzalo land on a different part of the island. 5. Caliban must get wood for Prospero's fire. OK

English
No, it doesn't read that way to me. It seems to be saying that the ship is in a river, not far from here (and "here" is wherever the speaker is standing, but NOT near the ship). If you want those to be in apposition, try rephrasing as I did above.

This is not normal phrasing because it's not clear: "I want fifty thousand Euros for you to get it." Is he saying he wants her to pay him 50,000 Euros? Is he saying he wants her to have the painting and he'll pay the 50,000 Euros? It's just not clear.

English
I'm not sure what that means. If Ms Yardley wants to BUY the Picasso, then the sentence should read this way: Fifty thousand Euros, Ms Yardley,' the man says. 'I want fifty thousand Euros if you want to buy it. However, if the man wants to buy the Picasso, the sen...

the parts of speech
Right ... a direct object. Sometimes direct objects are also called "verb complements," but most of the time, the term "complement" is meant for other constructions: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/objects.htm#complement

Neither A nor C is correct!! What noun comes after an ACTION VERB??

Right. Also, plain ol' ordinary future tense has "will" as a helping verb, but future perfect has "will have" as helping verbs ... every time!

First person = I or we Second person = you Third person = he, she, it, or any singular noun Try again.

What "following"?

English
The two sentences mean about the same thing. The first one reads better because of the verb tenses. The second isn't incorrect, just very awkward.

Technically, 2, 4, and 6 are grammatically correct, but we don't speak this way. In normal conversation, I'd use 1, 3, and 5.
