Student or Learner
Can anybody help me with these two sentences? I am told that they are wrong but I don not know why.
a) I think I must have eaten some rancid fish.
b) There were some really heavy winds last night.
Any help will be greatly appreciated
In (a) the collocation 'rancid fish' is a bit unusual; fish is typically 'rotten', 'bad' or 'off'. But I wouldn't say it's wrong.
In (b), again the collocation is a bit unusual. Winds, in the plural, are typically 'strong', and a 'heavy wind' tends to be singular. But other people might hear it differently.
Bottom line: neither's wrong, but I can see why some people might find them strange.
