WORD USAGE

Quick english help
In A, B, and D, "whom" is needed because each time the word is an OBJECT (direct object in A and D, object of a preposition in B). Subject form: who Object form: whom Compare with "he" and "him." Would you say, "Were you discussing he?" ...

A, B, and D all need to have "whom" instead of "who." Do you know why?

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.

1. We are going to tell John what happened. John= indirect object correct 2. Are you going to explain to your parents why you arrived home late? (Is this sentence grammatically correct? yes) Parents=indirect object incorrect 3. She isn't going to call us tonight. Us=direct...

English
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...

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.

English
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.

English
Yes, you can omit "that." With or without that word, the sentence will be fine. You are correct about the subjects. Remember, though, that "I" (in "I'm") is the subject of the subordinate clause, not the main clause.

English
In that sentence, "get" means about the same as "send for" or "call."

I always used exam grades as the basis of rounding-up or rounding-down decisions! And if a student had done progressively BETTER as the term went on, I'd round up, but if the student's grades were erratic (no pattern of upwards motion), then I'd round down. JMHO.

"men and boys" makes up an appositive and is detailing what is meant by "us." This sentence and both sentences in Q2 mean the same thing.
