    structure a sentence

    "I like the way you structure a sentence."

    Is it OK to say this If I like how someone speaks?

    Wouldn't it be better to say I like the way you speak or I like the way you put your ideas into words, or I like the way you express yourself. To me, your sentence looks fine though.

    Re: structure a sentence

    Whilst the sentence is correct we would not say that. Using the 'structure' would most likely be used in a learning situation regarding written work.
