Excuse me! Some more questions!
Is this sentence O.K.?
She is eager for all of us to be here.
And the phrase " for all of us to be here" is Subjective Compliment to the link verb BE? Am I right?
In the sentence:
Thanks God, I didn't lose it. I would hate (lose) it?
Should I choose the -ing form because it concerns a past event? OR
Sould I choose the inf. because the event is hypothetic?
Is it possible for a sentence with "to be allowed to" to exist without containing an agent for the action. For example:
She doesn't allow to talk in a loud voice.
Could it be a printable mistake?
Which sentence is better to use?
I will never forgive him for refusing let me go.
I will never forgive his refusing to let me go.
I will never forgive him refusing to let me go.
The same is with the next 2 pairs. I can't choose which of them are better to use.
1. Did you actually see him put the money into the safe. OR
2. Did you actually see his putting the money.
1. I didn't avoid mentioning his intention to leave. (which sounds to me better) OR
2. I didn't avoid mentioning his intending to live. (thus it sounds to me clumsy but this is the condition of an exercise) It makes me get confused.
