    my sister, in Italy, called me up

    1-My sister, in Italy, called me up.

    Does this mean:

    a) My sister, who is in Italy, called me up.

    b) My sister, who was in Italy, called me up.
    c) My sister called me up once when she was in Italy.
    or:
    d) My sister used to call me up when she was in Italy.


    I don't think it could mean 'c'. I think it could mean all the others.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: my sister, in Italy, called me up

    I see no reason for "up". If you just say "called me", almost everybody will assume you mean "telephoned me".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
