Like, totally tripendicular!
You do know it’s spelled “grammar,” not “grammer,” don’t you?
yeah,,,that's part of the joke.
I hope the teacher realised that the second sentence was also wrong, or is it correct in American English?
It would have been so much easier if your forefathers had chosen German as the language of their new country.
Why would the second sentence be wrong?
The past perfect is only used to describe two events in the past, where the chronological order has been reversed.
I had a cheeseburger, and then I had an apple pie. (Normal order.)
Before I had an apple pie I had had a cheeseburger. (Reversed order.)
...I had had a baseball.
"Yeah; With circles and arrows ...telling what each one was to be used as evidence against them."
That's an interesting way of describing it. I like it.
In American English, we say that past perfect describes an event that happened before some point in the past. I am not aware of a rule that says that the particular point in the past (or the second event chronologically, in your description) must be included in the sentence: "When I logged into Strat Talk, I saw the a little red box in the corner. Someone had responded to my post!"
For practical reasons, in the "had-had-had ..." scenario, I left out the context to get to the punchline.
I would have said: "When I logged into Strat-Talk, I saw the a little red box in the corner - someone had responded to my post!"
Agreed, I won’t attempt to read a similar post. A little punctuation goes a long way.
everyone on here has access to unlimited knowledge and teaching resources; the internet. Socioeconomic factors don't impact the ability to learn to write grammatically.
the end of the past participle saddens me - something used to be cliched, or someone was a chilled person - now somthing is cliche, or someone is chill.
After witnessing high school and middle school online learning programs these past 4 months I can say with absolute confidence:
Having access to tools and materials will not assure equal levels of learning.
Socioeconomic factors most certainly DO impact ones ability to learn and, most certainly, learn online.
My point was that everyone on here has access to the internet. in the wider community, i agree with you. Everyone on here is affluent enough to own one, or many , electric guitars and accoutrements.
When I was I kid, we didn't have the internet in our area.
When I was a kid we did arithmetic without the aid of calculators.
Yeah, I'm as old as dirt but still younger than @thomquietwolf
Yes. I obtusely kinda meant the web didn't exist, back in the early 60s'. Caveman times.
Lets just agree to disagree and call it a day.
This really is an interesting discussion between you and me, but I believe if we continue on our current course, we might encounter the wrath of the mods.
I suspect we probably agree overall - My comments were about people commenting online. But yes, i suspect the fire and brimstone of the mods may rain down..
