Should your information turn out to be true... (correct)
If your information turns out to be true.... (correct)
Should your information turn out to be true...
When used in this way "turn out" is an intransitive verb... to prove to be in the result or end see Merriam-Webster online.
"What I did in the end was get, not to get or getting, the answer said so"
'To get'can be used in a number of patterns and has a number of meanings. So maybe both are correct... I disagree with the answer but I could be wrong... It happens... I will stick with what I said...
What I did in the end was toget a lift with a colleague. (it sounds better to me)
"How about not any fitted?" The sentences "I tried every key but nonefit." and "I tried every key but not one fit." are compound sentences using the conjunction "but" so both parts need a subject and a verb. In my dictionary fit is a verb but fitted is an adjective.
You could have written it this way and it would have meant the same":
"I tried every key. None fit." or "I tried every key. Not one fit."
Joke follows.... "SHOULD WE GET THEM USELESS GRAMMAR CLASSES ALL TOOK OUT THE SCHOOLS?"
Nice day, Carl,
1) You said both are acceptable. Both? Do you mean Gerund and Infinitive or just Bare and Gerund or Infinitive and bare?
2) Yes, fitted is an adj. But in British English, fitted is the past form of fit
3) Sorry, I cannot get the joke. Could you explain it to me? Get them useless grammar classes all took out the school?
1) What I did in the end was get a lift with a colleague.
What I did in the end was to get a lift with a colleague.
I am not certain... Both sound alright to me and I am not aware of any rule that would prohibit the use of either of these but there may be.
2) Perhaps in Great Brittan "fitted" will work as the past form of "fit" but it won't in the US. I guess it depends on which form of English you want to use.
It fit today, it fit yesterday and it will fit tomorrow.
3) The joke... Sorry, I don't understand it either.
You are so funny, Carl ^^. IF you don't understand it, why did you post it here?
2) Okay, let put it that way we have two forms of English. If the sentence is British English, how come we cannot use not any fitted here?
