(Not a teacher)Thanks for reading my thread.
i) I didn't expect you to come. It was a big surprise.
ii) I was not expecting you to come. It was a big surprise.
There is no big difference between 1 and 2, isn't there? if any, is it a slight difference?
a. My car wouldn't start this morning. (refer to the past)(The remark is made in the afternoon)
b. My car will not start tomorrow. (refer to the future)(a prediction)
c. My car cannot start now. (refer to the present)(Maybe a permanent state)
d. My car is not starting now. (refer to the present)(a state that happens at the time of speaking or it refers to a temporary state only.)
e. My car is not starting again. (refer to the present)(same as (d))
I can accept from (a) to (c), but I do not know why (d) & (e) also correct ?
shouldn't it be as follow?
My car does not start now.
