That works too.
Student or Learner
I know that we can explain irritation, impatience or negative emotions towards sth/sb using present continuous. I have found that this is usually done with adverbs such as constantly, always etc. My question is, if we still can use present continuous for explainig irriation, but ommitting the adverbs above and replace them with EVERY + noun. Something like: You're getting up late every morning. or You're singing the awful song every time see you.
That works too.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Firstly, you need to know that the present continuous with such adverbs does not necessarily imply annoyance. That depends on context. It is quite possible for someone to say, "He's always buying me flowers; he such a dear"
Secondly, it is not natural to use 'every xxxx' in the way you suggested.
'You're always getting up late every morning' is not natural at all, in my opinion.
'You're singing the awful song every time I see you' is more likely, assuming both the speaker and the person addressed know which song 'the awful song' is, simply to suggest that this is what is happening (i.e. has already started) when the speaker every time that the speaker sees the person addressed. If annoyance is suggested, it is by the word 'awful' rather than by 'every time I see you'.
By the way, I was asking the question beacause of my brother's homework in Project 1. It was sort of embarrassing for me that I didn't know the right answer. There was a short converation beween two people:
A: Well, hurry up. We are waiting for you.
B Why........ you ......... so late every morning? (get up)
Though the book is for A1 I was wondering about it for long and honestly I still am. I would be very pleased you could tell me what tense would be appropriate in this particular case. Thank you in advance
