6. Is 'drama' the same as ' soap opera'? (question)

  • English -

    1. "in a film" = prepositional phrase
    2. "him" is often used when it is incorrect. "I dislike HIS going abroad." Right now I can't think of another away.
    3. I like 3.3 best.
    4. Probably 4.2
    5-1. You could but 5 is better.
    6. "drama" can be te same as "soap opera" referring to TV. Of course, on the stage, in the theater, it is not the same.

    Sra

  • English -

    1 - "in a film or play" is a prepositional phrase that modifies the noun "actors." Therefore, it's an adjective phrase.

    2 - Sra is correct.
    The only other ways I can think of to phrase this idea are these:
    **I don't like that he goes abroad.
    **I don't like him to go abroad.
