    I will give

    I will give thought on this.

    Is the above sentence is correct? My doubt is: Can we use "thought" in the above sentence.



    Thanks
    Anil

    Re: I will give

    Your sentence is incorrect.

    Say: "I will give it some thought."

    Or "I will think about it."

    "I will give it some thought."

    I understand the above is simple future tense? Why we are using 3rd form of think, since in future tense we use 1st form of verb?

    Re: I will give

    In that sentence, "thought" is a noun, not a verb.

    Why would a verb be modified by some?
