    is this sentence right grammatically?

    it's not necessary yelling at me or insulting me to make me cry... these days this damn heart's broken even by saying dear and honey...


    shouldn't "saying" be hearing? ... or it does't matter..

    thanksssss

    Re: is this sentence right grammatically?

    Welcome to the forum.

    "Saying" is fine if the person gets upset every time they say those words.

    Please note that there are some important rules in written English and we ask that all forum users follow them at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Always capitalise proper nouns.
    - Don't put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    An ellipsis (...) is a specific type of punctuation. It should not be used where it is not appropriate.
    I assume the words you posted are a quote from something (perhaps a song?) Please quote your source.
    Please use full English words, not textspeak or chatlish. "thanksssss" is not a word. It's "Thanks".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks a lot. OK, I'd try to do these rules. I barely know English. This sentence is a translation of my phone text.

    Re: is this sentence right grammatically?

    Thank you for using correct capitalisation and punctuation in your second post.

    Do you mean that someone has sent you a text message/SMS containing your quote?

    Re: is this sentence right grammatically?

    Sorry, I don't get what's your mean: "correct the location information in your profile". Is there a site in my profile named "location information" which i should correct that?

    No, I think the message is that "This heart gets broken by [someone else] saying 'Dear' or 'Honey', let alone by [someone else] yelling and insulting." It's acceptable colloquially.

    Thanks. You know in fact I'm searching for the nice translation that means:"I've been sensitive recently and there's no need yelling at me to make me cry even i heard something nice i cry too."
