    Re: one sentence

    The basic parts of a sentence are the subject, the verb, and (often, but not always) the object. The subject is usually a noun--a word that names a person, place, or thing. The verb (or predicate) usually follows the subject and identifies an action or a state of being. An object receives the action and usually follows the verb.

    Where, in the sentence you have provided, is the subject, the verb and the object?
    Is your sentence the result of an online translation?
    I have no idea what you wish to say.

    John

    Re: one sentence

    You're right, it was pure translation from my native language. I often don't understand english syntax, I have to improve that.

    "Times of tv and mass communication came and producers took advantages it to promote their products." maybe this time, you'll have idea what I would like to say.

    Dear JackobK,

    You have to stop thinking the your education lies with the click of a mouse on the "go Google" button and start studying English. You actually have to work at it to learn. It's tempting to "Google it", but 9 times out of 10 you end up making a fool of yourself.

    You probably mean to say something like:

    With the advent of television and other means of mass communication, manufacturers used the new medias to advertise and sell their products.

    Did you know that if you use the words 'television' and 'producers' in the same sentence, most English speakers will think the word 'producers' means: a person responsible for the financial and managerial aspects of making of a movie or television broadcast or for staging a play, opera, etc.

    That's the sort of information you get from a dictionary, not Google.

    Re: one sentence

    Dear John,

    Yes, I have to confess that my english is poor - ok, you're right, I am going to improve that.
    But I don't think that I am making a fool of myself when I am asking about language advice. Internet facilitates language learning, you have to understand that. Times have changed, and you have to open your mind and accept that.

    My advice, go for a walk (Paris is wonderful), don't pretending to be Don Quixote ;), Easy men !
