Functional English Grammar
I am reading "Functional English Gramma" by Graham Lock for a class. There are example sentences in the book with [inv.] at the end of the sentence. I can't figure out what [inv.] means. Can someone please help me? Thank you.
Re: Functional English Grammar
inv = sentence invented (by the author of the book)
