    Please provide the context of this statement.
    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.

    Re: Tamper

    Welcome to the forum, CoconutNata.

    You say in your profile that you are a native-speaking English teacher. I am surprised that you do not understand the words you posted.

    As BarbD said, we need to see the full sentence in which you saw this set of words.

    Please remember to start every sentence with a capital letter.
    Please remember to finish every sentence with the relevant punctuation mark (full stop, question mark, exclamation mark).
    Note that we say "What does [PHRASE] mean?"

    Indeed. I hadn't looked at the member profile before I replied.
