Hi , I'm lumpen and I would appreciate if you could tell me what "go clear by the passerby" means .
Thank you !
Welcome to the forums.
First, let me say thank you for giving your thread a proper title and using correct capitalizatin and punctuation (thought do remember that your name is a proper noun and should start with a capital letter too).
However, we need a bit more context to understand the sentence. "To go clear by" means to pass completely, but I'm not sure what the entire sentence means.
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.
