What tense/-ing
Message de mohnkuchen posté le 26-11-2012 à 20:13:15 (S | E | F)
Hello to all,

sorry for not precising my question, but I have no idea of which grammatical problem I'm talking about
I already used it in the first sentence: "not precising" - which tense is that, and when do I use it?
If I write, for example, "After reading this in the paper this morning, I got fed up enough to write a letter to the editor." and "After I read this in the paper this morning, I got fed up enough to write a letter to the editor."
Do these sentences mean the same? If not, what is the difference?
I even don't know how to pose ask the question
In my first sentence I also could write "sorry that I'm unable to precise...", but what is the difference?
I hope that you understand what I mean
Thanks a lot in advance for your advice
mohnkuchen

Another question.
This sentence, "It annoys me reading that they spread false information everywhere", is it grammatically correct? Which other ways are there to formulate it?

Dear lucile83,

I saw you recently corrected my mistakes
Would you be so kind as to explain to me my grammar problem?
Or please just give me a hint where I can look it up, if there is already a similar discussion existing somewhere?
Thank you very much.

Hello,
your ing forms are gerunds:
used after a preposition: after reading this.....
used after a verb expressing a feeling: I like swimming, I hate waiting.
used as subject or object: swimming is good for you, I love swimming.

Hello.
You could write "Sorry for not being precise", or "Sorry that I am unable to be precise".
Other ways to use precise include to do something with precision, or precisely.
In English, precise is not a verb.
Hope this helps.
Sherry
