"It's been a long time since I last saw her, and If someone had not mentioned her name I hardly think I would have recognized her."
If we say this at the beginning of a sentence, is it correct?
And this brings us back to where we were when we discussed this on another thread only yesterday, Ostap
Why not read through all the posts in that other thread, and think about them a little before you just fire off more random questions.
What precisely was the point you did not understand before? Try to make your precise difficulty clear. If you don't, you are just going to waste the time of people who don't realise that they are repeating what we did just one day ago.
As you well know, Ostap, a new post puts you at the head of the queue again. Please realise that there are other members who would like the chance to get their ocasional questions answered.
