    Teaching English as a foreign language

    Is "She's meeting Fred at 3pm" and "Pierre is speaking English" both present progressive tense?
    Can Word 97 produce phono alphabet?
    Thanks Tony

    They are both present progressive, though they're being used in different ways- the first for future time and the second for present. Word97 can do the phonetic alphabet if it has an appropriate font installed, which doesn't come as standard. I got mine from a dictionary on CD.

    re

    I think you can use the phonetic alphabet without having to install any special font.
    You just have to have an "Unicode" font, like "Lucide Sans Unicode". If a font is unicode, it is indicated in the name.

    ByE!

    I've just looked quickly- you're right.
