    Default relative and non relative sentences

    Hello Raymott,

    it was never my intention to have Barb spend all day and night to try and explain things to me. I never thought beyond her sending me a quick reply. How about had I wrote, 'When I saw him at the beginning of the week he looked cheerful, but having bumped into him on Wednesday he looked depressed.'? Is there really that much difference between that and my original? Such is my point, I suppose. Is there anybody out there (moderator or otherwise) who agrees with me? That would be nice!

    This post is meaningless on its own, red an' dead. Please copy it and post it in the thread it refers to.
