    Red face help!

    Are these sentences correct?

    1. "I'm wonderin' how did Mark know my password."

    I'm just confused when it comes to noun clause. Is it a noun clause? I read we cannot use does,do,did in noun clauses.If this sentence is wrong, can someone rephrase it.Thanks!

    2. "I can now say whatever I want without you teasin' me." ( because of email, one can now say whatever he wants without the presence of the person who teases her. )

    Is this correct? Thanks!

    thanks! : ) but how about " I'm wonderin' what's wrong?Is it correct?...just confused...I'm actually not sure if it's correct but I often hear it and if it's correct, how come that " I'm wonderin how did Mark know my password" is wrong and "I'm wonderin' what's wrong" is correct when both are asking question after "I'm wonderin" I hope you get my point.thanks a lot! : )

    One verb: what is wrong.

    [1] I'm wonderin' what's wrong.

    Two verbs: how did Mark know . . .

    [2] I'm wonderin' how did Mark know my password. <incorrect>
    [3] I'm wonderin' what did go wrong. <incorrect>

    Correction:

    [2] I'm wonderin' how Mark knew / knows . . .
    [3] I'm wonderin' what went wrong / what is wrong.

    Hope that helps.
