    An Eloquent Man

    Hey guys.
    Which one sentence is correct whether either?

    By the way I want to apologize "birdeen's" for called as a boy "Sir"


    (FIRST) - I am eloquent man.
    -=whether=-
    (SECOND) - I eloquent man.

    I think that second sentence is correct but in essence both they are correct.

    IF I MADE ANY MISTAKES PLEASE CORRECT ME.

    Re: Grammar = Pauly's topic.

    I think that second sentence is correct but in essence they are both correct.
    Neither is correct. Only 'I am an eloquent man' would be correct.

    Two more bits of advice for you, Paulys:

    1. Start a new thread when you ask a different question.

    2. Give your thread a title which relates to your question - such as Eloquent man.

    (I have split off these posts to create a new thread.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
