    Remembered

    Hi guys',

    what does "remembered" mean?

    "I remembered something"

    1) It came to my mind when I was doing something or 2) It was already in my mind".

    Re: Remembered

    What does your dictionary say under "remember"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Remembered

    Sorry I didn't get you. Does it mean to come suddenly in mind if so then what would be the word for thing that was already in my mind?

    Re: Remembered

    But we also say "I remembered that(that was in my mind) so I did that".

    Re: Remembered

    NOT A TEACHER
    I think what he meant is whether "remember" in that sentence is a stative verb meaning "to have a picture of something in mind" or an active verb meaning "to recall information".
    It can mean either, in my opinion. More clues are needed to decide which sense it means.
    Please notify me of any mistakes in my posts. It is much appreciated.
