With some books badly needed to buy,she hurried to the bookstore.
With some books badly needing buying,she hurried to the bookstore
Are the above sentences both right?
Could I ask native English teachers to help me? Thank you very much.
As a BrE speaker, I wouldn't say that the second example is wrong, but it's a bit ugly and cumbersome- how about using 'in need of'?
Thank you very much ~!
(of course we do have a speaker in this example)
I still can't accept Fragrant.Z's specific examples.
"Badly needing to buy some books, she hurried to the bookstore." seems so much better.
Anyway, that's my opinion.
