    Question What is the wrong thing about these expressions?

    "the distance" taken => the distance which is taken

    "the girl" smiling => the girls who is smiling

    "it" can be done => it is can be done

    "i" can do it => i am can do it (the second type of the expressions is like a little bit stronger; because it is like the saying of a man like "i am the man who can do it." while playing last man standing at the background. )

    the man died => the man is died.

    ================================

    also,

    i am going for reading = > i am going to reading => i am going to read.

    why these three expressions cannot be used for the same work?

    maybe if the situation was like

    i am going to do reading or i am going for doing reading.

    there would not be more choice because of the two actions, verbs that still there can be a change for

    i am going to doing reading

    for the direction of the work as actually there is no difference to understand.

    What is wrong with these expressions?

    They don't make sense in English.

    Re: What is wrong with these expressions?

    While reading the question I was entirely sure it was from vogel.

    I suggest you rewrite the question completely because it hardly makes any sense.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: What is the wrong thing about these expressions?

    When you rewrite your questions, remember these rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: What is the wrong thing about these expressions?

    When you rewrite, please ask about only one sentence in each thread. Threads can become hopelessly confused if different people deal with different questions at different times.
