Hello.

Are the following sentences grammatically correct?



"Kevin walked to the theater with hamburgers and french fries. He saw Rupert, near to the theater, lying on the ground with his dog. He sat near to Kevin and shared the food."

Thanks.

Dear teechar:

Once again, thanks for your help.

Rupert was lay down on the street playing with his dog.

"Kevin walked the theater with hamburgers and french fries. He saw Rupert, lay down on the street playing with his dog. He sat near to Rupert and shared the food."

I still don't get it. Do you mean lying on the footpath?
Even then, it's a strange sentence-- people don't normally lie on the street/footpath. Can you elaborate a little on what Rupert was doing?

Dear teechar and emrs2d2:

Yes, I agree that it is a strange sentence.

Rupert is an homeless that lives near the old theater of the city.

Thanks.
