    Default You shouldn't bring/press/prefer false charges against a chaste woman

    My dear and respected teachers,
    1: "You shouldn't bring/press/prefer false charges against a chaste woman." OR "You shouldn't bring/press/prefer a false charge against a chaste woman." Which one is correct?
    2: "For how many months are you pregnant?'' correct?
    3: "I'm spectating a cricket match on TV." correct?

    Hi twilit1988

    1. You shouldn't bring/press false charges against a chaste woman.

    2. How many months along are you?

    3. I'm watching a cricket match on TV.

    Hey Soup, number 2 is very American. I'd say:

    How many months pregnant are you? Or: In which month are you?

    I have a dictionary of Oxford.
    It is written ''IDM'' 'bring/press/prefer 'charges against sb'' (law) to accuse sb formally of a crime so that there can be a trial in a court of law...
