    First socialist building in Kharkiv

    Hi,

    I am also a new person here, I am not a teacher, and I am not going to be, I don't want to chat. I have an idea that I can write some sentences in english which I am not sure about and I can't find information about somewhere else. I can give an example, I have written a sentence : This building is a first socialist building in Kharkiv of its destructed but slowly reconstructing state. I don't know if it's correct, but I think I have seen alike examples.

    Is it possible here? I had wanted to create a thread, but I resigned as I didn't know what topic would be appropriate.

    Thanks for your answers

    Re: First socialist building in Kharkiv

    I have moved your thread to a new one in the correct area.

    I am not exactly sure what the last part of your sentence means. It should be something like This is the first socialist building in Kharkiv, but I am not sure what you mean by the last part, that destructed should be destroyed.

    Re: First socialist building in Kharkiv

    Thank you for your answers. There were two mistakes in the sentence, one in spelling, and second with usage of unappropriate word. I will write name of another city instead of Kharkiv, can be Warsaw, or Berlin. I can modify the sentence now so It will be more comprehensive.

    This buidling is the first socialistic building in Warsaw of its destroyed but slowly reconstructing state.

    The second part is a very brief description of effects caused by inhuman happenings that had their place in the city. I thought it is one variant of saying that the city lost everything during the war: its elites, infrastructure, national inheritence, spirit etc.

    Could anyone inform me if the second part of the sentence is correct? Now that I have written more about it.

    Re: First socialist building in Kharkiv

    Could anyone please inform me whether the second part of the sentence is correct? Does this order of words (verbs also) have its name? I want to check how I can properly use it in another examples, or what use does it have in daily life and writting.

    For those who see the thread first time I can write down again whole sentence: This buidling is the first socialistic building in Warsaw of its destroyed but slowly reconstructing state.
