    Question I will go up and come down

    Hi everyone,

    A person says to his friend by standing on the ground floor " I will go up and come down"

    Is this sentence correct English or butler English?

    I don't know what you mean by 'by standing on the ground floor'.

    'I will go up and come down' is fine, if that is what the speaker is going to do. It seems a bit of a wasted effort to me.

    My butler says that all the time. Don't ask me why.

    Wow. Butler English. A whole new variant for us to play with.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
