    bring...together

    I will bring my sister along to his party.

    Q1:Can I say bring...together in the sentence?
    =>I will bring my sister together to his party.

    Q2:Do these have the same meaning?
    =>She will bring her dad along.
    =>She will bring her dad together. (Is this right?)

    Thank you

    Re: bring...together

    Or is it "bring...alone"?

    I don't understand that. Please write a full sentence.

    Re: bring...together

    Thank you for your reply. Rover.

    I read a textbook and the part of the dialoque is:

    A:Next time we should come earlier and watch the sun rise.
    B:Good idea. Let's also bring your dad along.


    That's the original one. So I was thinking can it be written bring...together instead bring...along.
