Would you please help me out with the following difficulties?
(help me out = bail me out ?)
1) It's a story about... THAT (= dont in French ?) we don't know if it is true or false.
(how should this sentence be written please?) The sentence is better rephrased as "This is a story about xxxxx, but we do not know if it is true or false". "dont" carries many possible interpretations!
2) position of adverbs: Correct ? Yes
a) He PROBABLY wouldn't have met him.
b) He would PROBABLY not have met him.
c) He would PROBABLY have never met him.
3) mixed conditional ?
If it WERE known it WOULD HAVE BEEN mentioned in the text. (correct ? Yes)
4) since + simple past ?
Shakespeare's plays STARTED to be performed in 1592 .
A thousand thanks.
