    Default Re: Sentenses

    The first is okay.

    The second has two errors of capitalization and used the wrong form of the verb. Some may also say it has two errors of punctuation.

    The third uses the wrong tense.
    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.

    ....and it's spelled "sentences", not "sentenses".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
