    VERBS

    kINDLY check whether I have used verbs correctly or not.

    A) The four walls of a house GIVE one security but they also CONFINE. Similarly, education FREES the intellect, yet the rules and regulations of school and college stifle the perosnality. In short, everyting CARRIES a contradiction within itself. This IS not a quote from a book. It IS a snippet from the innumerable discussions that GO on in our house.

    b) Quickfire, high performance pertrol KEEPS your engine clean ENSURES easy start and better backup. The lubricant, MANUFACTURED from premium base oil KEEPS your engine clean, cool and young forever. This unbeatable combination KEEPS your engine RUN tirelessly.

    ***** A NON-TEACHER's COMMENT *****


    (1) You said that you just wanted the underlined verbs checked.

    (2) I think that you did a fantastic job.

    (3) I would only suggest that you might want to say:

    Hi James, thanks for taking out time and commenting on my most of the posts. You people are generous and doing wonderful job helping others with understanding this language better.

    One more thing. You mentioned that I just wanted to get checked verbs only. Does it mean that there are other mistakes also in the post ?

    ***** A NON-TEACHER's COMMENT *****


    (1) Thank you for your kind note. Yes, I have noticed that the vast

    majority of the teachers, non-teachers, and thread starters treat

    one another with respect and courtesy.

    (2) I noticed a few very minor things (not important):

    (a) security, but .... (comma)

    (b) petrol, keeps your engine clean and ensures an easy ,,,, (spelling,

    comma, conjunction "and," the article "an")

    (c) base oil, keeps ....

    (3) As you can see, your paragraph was, in fact, excellent. Many

    American teachers wish that their students could write as well as

    you do.


    Respectfully yours,


    James
