#1 The following question is too blunt for the first time meeting.
“I would like to visit you in New York. What’s your address?”
So, if you make the question better, more general to mean the almost same thing
“I would like to meet you in New York. Can you ( )?”
Which would you choose to fill in the bracket?
A: recommend an inexpensive hotel B: let me stay at your house c: tell me how to get to your house.
I think it is B
#2 Mr. A: Many people have heard of her, haven’t they?
Mr. B: Yes, she is ( )
Which you would choose?
A: known quite well B: quite well know
I have googled. Both of them exist quite a lot. The number of quite well know is larger.
Which is better and I would like to know the reason.
If you have to choose one. Which?
“I would like to meet you in New York. Can you____?”
A: recommend an inexpensive hotel.
B: let me stay at your house.
C: tell me how to get to your house.
Mr. A: Many people have heard of her, haven't they?
Mr. B: Yes, she is ___.
A: known quite well.
B: quite well-known. <notice the hyphen>
'quite' modifies 'well-known'. Check out this site, especially Exercise 6, Question 2.
All the best.
To the best of my knowle, the hyphen is optional in well known. Here is my reason:
1. She is known for her beauty and wits.
2. She is quite well known for her beauty and wits.
From the above two illustrations, we can see clearly quite well serve as an adverb, which is optional in the context.
Thank you very much, Harry, Quish, Piousoul and Casiopea. I understand them.
