    Question Two constructions


    1. It is quite normal for a person to be the subject of a sentence.
    2. It is quite normal that a person is the subject of a sentence.

    I feel that those two sentences have a slightly different meaning, even though
    they carry the same information. Nevertheless, I am not able to define the difference.
    Could you help me with this?

    No. 1 implies that it is quite normal for a person, and No. 2 implies that it is quite normal for a sentence.
