    Re: rand slam on run

    I think it is a mishearing of "grand slam on the run".

    With reference to your question about "have have", it looks like a mis-transcription or mishearing. It could be that it was So we have [hesitation by speaker] - also have been very productive here.

    You are totally right, Anglika, about grand slam, because Jack got this comment from another actor on it: - you think this is a home run? In return he nodded his head . And so, it is not "on run" as well, the whole phrase is: grand slam home run. But may I ask why he added home run despite grand slam in itself means it.
    For " have have been ", if you really think it is not correct, explain to me the same "have have been" in the box of Company News on this web page:
    MBT Services Corporation Home Page. There are others like: http://home.earthlink.net/~kirkmccoy/photo.htm , http://www.greatlakesrestorationbran...g/isolated.htm , http://www.happyjacksfuncompany.com/medihebr.html, and http://www.amit08.com/ .

    It is a mistake, man. Can't you really see it?



    You seem to have an attitude problem. You think you are right, no matter what teachers say, no matter what natives do to explain it.

    You should be a little bit more humble.

    But I am not a teacher.

    This is the problem with transcribing - punctuation is lost.

    I suspect the actor's line is "Grand slam
    , home run", both sporting terms indicating maximum success.


    For " have have been ", if you really think it is not correct, explain to me the same "have have been" in the box of Company News on this web page:
    MBT Services Corporation Home Page. There are others like: http://home.earthlink.net/~kirkmccoy/photo.htm , Isolated Saints , Mercury Dime Heart bracelet, and Amit Singh for Congress 2008 | Virginia's 8th District .

    All these are errors. Whoever typed the copy for the websites did not properly check (or have checked) what they had typed. It is not uncommon on the internet. I still think that the transcription probably lost a pause that was in the script.
    Keep the questions coming!
