What is difference between these simultaneous expressions?
(I guess someone might ask similar question before but the keyword is so common that I wasn't able to found out.)
1.The earl had a meal as playing cards.
2.The earl had a meal while playing cards.
3.The earl had a meal playing cards.
And the tense used in front and after is not corresponding in my sentence. Should I make them same tense?
Thanks in advance.
Thank you, Casiopea. And I discovered a profitable reference, too. It explained enough about what I wanted to know. http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/le...rnitv294.shtml
But I got another problem... I'm afraid it's somewhat foolish question, though...
I couldn't clearly get what your answer meant. Did you mean "while" is most preferable?
