    Re: What the diffrence between these tow sentences?

    Tow sentence? This expression stopped me short dead in my tracks, and I was pondering for hours on end what in the name of the Atlantic South it is. Then came the light. Two sentences!

    The use of the present perfect with a time adverbial that denotes a point on the axis of time is no go.

    OK, in your first example:

    "Come inside here" would be the imperative - you are ordering/asking someone to come inside to the same place you are.

    "Don't look from outside, please" is a rather odd sentence. I guess if you wanted to tell someone not to look through a window, then you could use it.

    I was at home last night is the correct sentence.

    Note: as you made the same error twice in one post - the spelling of the number 2 is TWO, not tow.
