    Made-up Stories

    - Dear friends!

    - All the things which she said yesterday were fabrications / were made-up stories.
    - Is this sentence grammatical?

    Thanks!

    Re: Made-up Stories

    Yes, but in speech, we would omit the "which":
    All the things she said yesterday were fabrications
    All the things she said yesterday were made-up stories.

    Understand that 'made-up stories' is a phrase a kindergarten teacher might use when talking with that age group of children.
