"I am being rude all the time." A line from Twilight. present perfect... future, past... Is this sentence grammatical? If not, why not?
For instance, can't we say the following?
I am trying hard to get back in shape; as a result, I am running every day.
Does it in any way have to do with the use of "being." For instance, would it be better to say,
I am acting rude[ly] all the time.
(Note the change to adverb.)
Or does it change it if I were to expand it,
I find these days that I am acting rude[ly] all the time.
And thank you, phylad, for bringing this question. I need to refresh my understanding of the present continuous.
