There's nothing wrong with that in an appropriate context.Hi Everybody,
Recently I read the book and got the following sentence, I feel so weird, I'm not sure if it's grammatically incorrect. "She not only dreamed about it"
There's nothing wrong with that in an appropriate context.
Here's one context and meaning:
She not only dreamed about it. = She didn't just dream about it.
She not only dreamed about it; she actually went out and did it!
She not only dreamed about it; she wrote and sang about it as well.
Yes, it's also more common to say "She didn't just dream about it" here on Earth. But that doesn't make the other phrasing wrong. It's acceptable.Thanks Raymott. But in my daily life, most of people would say "She didn't just dream about it." I mean I seldomly see people would put "not only" after the subject cos "not only" is not verb, that's why it's so weird to me. Could you tell me whether it is formal sentence or not? Thanks.
Yes, it's incomplete as a sentence.
