    Shall you explain the difference between these two sentences?

    ''There'll be another bus along in a couple of minutes''.
    ''There'll be another bus in a couple of minutes''.

    The second sentence is shorter.

    Re: Shall you explain the difference between these two sentences?

    Guilhermehm, please give your threads better titles. Not only is "shall" the wrong word in all your titles (it should be "Can" or "Would") but thread titles shold include some or all of the words you are querying. A good title for this thread would have been "There'll be another bus".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    There's no difference in meaning between the two sentences as they would normally be used. 'Along' is optional here, and understood.
