#s 1 and 2 are fine. In #3, use weeks' (plural possessive) since it's two of them. #4 -- cough lozenge or cough drop (not tablet) frozen food counter check-out desk, or simply "at the check-out" put the ankle in a cast (not "counter" or "...

Is this your sentence? Please help me figure this out! The verb is "help" -- so who is expected to do the helping? Please? help? (that doesn't make sense, does it?) me? ("me" would help me out? nah!) You (implied) Which one will you choose?

The only one I can suggest is the Oxford English Dictionary -- www.oed.com You may have to create an account, and I don't know if it's free or not, but it's worth checking out.

Start out with these or similar words: Have they ... ? ("rubbed out" has been used as a synonym for "erased" - it can also be used with "scrubbed" in a sentence about cleaning something difficult.)

Did you figure out what the 2nd adverb is?

...who or what carries out the action of the verb
Monday, February 1, 2010 at 8:54pm by Writeacher
You're welcome. Did you figure out the others yet? ??
Saturday, November 10, 2007 at 10:16pm by Writeacher
Oh, sorry! To me, "I'd leave it" means "I'd leave the word in there." (Not "I'd take it out!") I know English isn't easy, and certainly the use or omission of "the" is one of the problem areas! I think you're doing ...

How can you rephrase this and leave out all the "I will" phrasing?
Wednesday, March 12, 2008 at 12:00pm by Writeacher
I'd use "a" when it's all written out, and "an" when it's abbreviated. =)
Monday, October 8, 2007 at 7:39am by Writeacher
Whoa! Please go through these yourself. Read them out loud to someone or to yourself so you can hear what you're writing. If you still have questions, re-post -- but out of 32 separate instances, you should be able to get it down to the 5 that you absolutely cannot get.

Friday, March 13, 2009 at 8:33pm by Writeacher
Who is = correct, when the words are spelled out. But I think your teacher wants you to figure out the word that sounds like "whos" but is correct for the sentence. Which contraction meets that requirement? Which word means the same thing as "who is"?
Friday, April 18, 2008 at 1:38pm by Writeacher
course coarse Yes, leave out the "or" and spell the second one right!!

#3 and #4 - delete "/completely" -- it is not interchangeable with "out" #5 -- either preposition will do; I think "to" is better. #6 -- use "at"

As written, it seems as if by drawing the line you'll figure out who is introducing whom. But that doesn't make sense. How about this: Draw a line between the two people once you find out who is introducing whom. ??

All are correct, except the last part of the last sentence reads strangely. You wouldn't fill out the same forms over and over, every day, would you? Try this: "Please take these forms home, fill them out, and bring them back tomorrow."

"make an impact" is today's slang for "influence" ... so do you see the repetition? What can you cut out and still keep the meaning the same?

You can simply leave it out, but the sentence won't make sense. What is "a UK"? And don't forget to capitalize "I" since you're referring to yourself.

All are correct, yes. The prepositions seem to be interchangeable. In those last six sentences, though, I'd leave out "to go" -- that infinitive is redundant.

Great!! I'd use "tap water" -- the phrase means it comes out of the kitchen faucet from the city supply. Nice job! =)

1. I'd leave out "shameless" but the rest is fine. 2. OK (watch the spelling of "should" however) 3. Yes, the variations are possible, but wordy. Your first phrasing is the best.

1. OK 2. OK I'd say "to the beach." 3. Either phrasing is fine. 4. OK 5. OK 6. He didn't let the secret out. He didn't let on that he knew the secret. 7. All OK, yes.

no you cannot take out the who in any sentence. Read them out loud to your self. The second ones just do not sound correct and that is because they are not. Proper English will keep who in both sentences.
