    Resonate someone

    Hello teachers,

    If I say 'you resonates xyz', can I mean you remind me of xyz?

    No. That doesn't work at all.

    Re: Resonate someone

    Not only does it not make sense, but even if you had the correct word, it would be "You resonate xyz", not "You resonates ​xyz".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Resonate someone

    Could you have meant "resemble"?
    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.
