    I have some new questions:

    1) Can we write Paris’s love (of book Romeo and Juliet) and read it like „Parises“ ?

    2) Is your news good or bad? – this is a sentence I have read in book Romeo and Juliet. „News“ is plural, so why did they say „Is“ instead of „Are“ ?

    3) How did you get in here? - I am not sure, but I think I have read this in Romeo and juliet too. Anyway, why is the preposition „IN“ there? Could we say: How did you get here? Which cases can I use „in here“ and which can I use just „here“ with?

    4) wanna = want to?
    Gonna = going to?

    5) This is my last question. It doesn’t concern grammar. How can we end informal letter or an e-mail to a friend, boy? Can we use Love, Hugs, or Kisses? He is just my friend I don’t know that if when I use for example LOVE he won’t think I love him. Does it sound stupid? What would you think when you got a letter ended with one of these words? I still haven’t got the English flair and sense for what is good to use.
    I hope you will help me.



    + 6) Well, I just remembered one really last question. What does gotta mean? is it got to?

    Thanks, Lenka

    I don't think Paris's is correct. Add an apostrophe only (no s) if you need to use a possessive.

    How did you get in here?
    I believe you can use either get or get in. The latter says that you're in a house, a building etc.

    wanna = want to?
    Gonna = going to?
    Yes

    What does gotta mean? is it got to?
    Yes

    How can we end informal letter or an e-mail to a friend
    "Take care" for instance.

    It is interesting, because I think there was Paris's love in tzhe book. Anyway, thank you for the answers. But what about question number 2?
    + question 5: which other words could I use to end it? I don't still want to write just TAKE CARE. Can I write:
    Hugs,
    Lenka
    ?




    Thanks.

    Yes, I think you can write Paris's love, though I believe it looks better with just an apostrophe.

    So what would you think about someone who would end his e-mail to you by:

    love,
    Lenka

    What would you think of him?

    If it's a friend or family, it's fine.- it would look a bit strange otherwise.
