Which one is correct?
Jane changes her whishes frequently.
Jane's wishes change frequently.
I have to say that, though they are grammatically acceptable, neither of them sounds very natural to me. If the idea is Jane keeps changing her miind about what she wants, that's what I'd say.
I think that adverb is the reason makes you feel unnatural with those sentences. So we can find another adverb to help them more natural.
I'm sorry for my offside questions, I only really want to know the reason makes you feel unnatural.
Thank you so much !
It's nothing to do with the adverb. I simply feel that we do not normally express this idea as 'changing one's wishes'.
Let's see if other native speakers join in. If they disagree with me, then I'll accept that it's just a personal feeling.
As a follow- up to my last post, I tried Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA) .
There I found:
