1)I will bring my brother along with me.
I will bring my brother with me.
Does "along" make any difference?
2) Yesterday, I could not lift the couch by myself.
Can we omit "by myself"? After omitting, whether the meaning will remain same?
1. The two sentences mean the same
2. You can omit "by myself". Without context it is impossible to tell if the sentence would mean the same.
