    Having trouble with grammar

    I start it bawling after I accidently fell down the stair.

    Thank you.

    Re: Having trouble with grammar

    'I started bawling when I accidentally fell down the stairs' sounds more natural.

    Please give your threads more relevant titles. I start it bawling would have been good for this (even though it's wrong).

    Thank you.
    Your title said you were having trouble with grammar. What exactly was your problem? The only real problems you had with that sentence were a mishearing/misunderstanding of "started" as "start it", the spelling of "accidentally", and the fact that we say "down the stairs" (plural).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please don't use the same title repeatedly-give each question a relevant title. Thanks.
