    Sentence structure

    Hi. I'm a newbie and apologize if my post is in the wrong forum. Feel free to direct me accordingly. I'm on medication that causes neurological effects on my brain and looking for some assistance with basic sentence structure. Here are some examples in daily emails/convo where I struggle to decide on the correct sentence. Can someone please help? Also is this considered sentence structure or something else? I would love to do a search in order to print some practice worksheets. Thank you!

    Re: Sentence structure

    Welcome to the forum.

    Your question is in the appropriate section of the forum. All eight of your sentences are grammatical and natural. I don't favour either of each pair over its counterpart. If you're choosing between those sentences when you speak or write, you're not looking for the "correct" one because they're both correct each time. Use whichever you prefer.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
