    revision of two sentences

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to explain to me the difference between the following two sentences? I envisage the interpretation of the sentences in question.

    Supposing she really did one of those things.
    Supposing she did do one of those things.

    Do you think that the sentences above have a proper structure?


    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Do you think that the sentences above have a proper structure? Yes. The second is merely a more emphatic form of the first.

    Re: revision of two sentences

    Hi fivejedjon,

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Only for the protocol:

    envisage = to consider or regard in a certain way (conceive of)

    My intention was to to make more precise what I have in mind for. (In the present case - difference in the interpretations and not in the structures of the very sentences which is all too obvious.
