I heard the following dialogue when I was watching a moive.
A: I had some very good memories there.
B: What kind of good memories, your mother and father fighting all the time.
Question 1. Is it correct to say 'What kind of good memories, your mother and father were fighting all the time.'
Question 2. 'fight' has two different meaning ie.1. to use physical force to try to defeat another person or group of people 2. to argue. If we hear somebody says : "They're fighting" how can we distinguish they use physical force or just to argue?
2. We can't. We normally assume the #2 definition in a marriage.
