    I looked for her

    Hi,

    Is "I looked for her behind every tree" correct?

    Re: I looked for her

    Yes, it's grammatically correct. It only works if there are a limited number of trees involved and the listener/reader knows which trees you're talking about.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
