    best / best of friends

    Dear Teacher

    1. Soon we were taling to each other like best friends.

    2. Soon we were taling to each other like the best of friends.

    Which is the correct sentence?

    Thank you very much.

    #1 sounds correct to my ear.

    Re: best / best of friends

    Both are possible -- provided that you add a 'k' to "taling".

    I don't understand your reply, especially the last part.

    Which is the correct sentence? Both 1 and 2 are OK.

    Thank you very much.
    I assumed that "taling" was a typo in each of the sentences since "tale" isn't generally used as a verb.

    You're right. It's a typo.
