Yes, I intentionally made it that way. :DOriginally Posted by twostep
I thought the reason why it did not make sense was that you detected the dissonance because the tenses were incompatible. I didn't think the word order was that much significant for the semantic determination. So I made the tenses compatible while I kept it "X while Y."The street is wet while it is not rainy.
But now it really seems that the order IS the determinant. :(
Strange, it is, really. And I do want to know why (I mean, it's the same "while", right? What psychology is there behind that makes "while" "although" in one case, and doesn't in another??)Originally Posted by Francois
