- For Teachers
Hi, there!! How have you been? I have been obsessed with studying English so far and now I am so confident and
relieved that I am with great people here. I'd like to say "thank you" again.
Today, I have brought some issue people here have different opinions about. However, it is kind of a waste of time arguing on our own here, so I need your help and opinions.
"I stood looking out of the window"
Some people here say that the speech part of "looking" is an adjective and it functions as a subjective complement in the sentence.
The others say "No", It is just a participial construction and tells us the action happening at the same time.
I think the latter does make sense more. What do you think? This is a really controversial issue to some people here.
Please help me again. Thank you a million in advance.
Thanks and sorry about the ambiguity. The meaning of "here" in my first sentence is my country, which is not using English as an offical language. Thank you again.
