    Hi Robby,
    Please explain the grammar concepts regarding the use of the word “being” in the sentence below:
    Living a meaningful life is not about being rich, handsome or successful.
    What part of speech is “being”?
    Are there any other words I could use instead of being?
    Why are there two “be verbs” in one sentence – is and being?
    Sorry for the silly questions, and thank you in advance for your help.

  • Jardel Lucca

    Hi Robby,

    We all know that famous quote “there is a sucker born every minute”.

    Born is not a noun here (otherwise it should be “birth”). According to my grammar, the quote should be “a sucker is born every minute”. What’s wrong with my understanding?

    Cheers!

  • Annabelle Laws

    If i have the sentence ‘The man who had been smothered in mud’ is smothered a verb or adjective?

  • esraa hamad

    what should i choose here :
    Do you think the character in this story …….. on a real person
    a)based
    b)is basing
    c)has based
    d)was based
    by the way i think that we should choose d)was based because we need to use the passive form but my english teacher said that both a)based and d)was based can be correct . can you please explain it ? and does this have any relation with the verb’s being transitive or intransitive ?
    finally, i would like you to correct any mistakes in my writing .

  • kimi

    Is everyone sleeping.
    -This sentence is correct. Everyone, each, every, everybody, somebody, nobody, somebody, someone, no one are treated singular and hence take a singular verb such as ‘is’, ‘was’, etc…

  • Rokas Vi

    Can I say How much kills? Or How many kills? It is for a video game I had an argument with a friend. Or can you say both?

  • Jeffrey Lee Pressman

    Hidden is better than hiding, although either is grammatically correct. “Hiding” is a gerund, extending the verb “to hide” into continuous action. The frogs are searching and hiding simultaneously, which balances the whole sentence by making its two clauses equivalent, instead of using the second clause to qualify — that is, explain — the first. “Hidden” is the adjectival form of the verb “to hide,” describing something that is not visible: frogs. This is slightly superior here, to my ear, because now the second clause supports the first clause by explaining it. Why can frogs search underwater? They “can” (are able to) do this because underwater they can become hidden, therefore safer from birds. However, in both solutions, I don’t like the proximity of “hiding” or “hidden” to the word “underwater.” It’s clear enough but could be clearer. As a useful tip, adjectives want to be as close the noun they modify as possible, making the description completely unambiguous. For example, the disadvantage of “hidden” is the slight potential to infer that the food, not the frogs, is hidden from birds. A good writer spots that potential confusion and corrects it by locking down the connection between frogs and hiding. For example: To hide from birds of prey, frogs search for food underwater.

    What I want is love and respect.
    (or)
    What I want are love and respect.

    I do NOT wish to rewrite the sentence to read: Love and respect are what I want. I specifically wish to know if this sort of subject — “what I want” — has a proper term to describe it, and if it is always singular. I have seen both in highly edited sources, such as the NY Times. To my ear, in the example above, “is” sounds better, but in other longer constructions, “are” sometimes sounds better. Is there a rule that applies here?

    Can you help with a grammar question? Here’s the sentence: Frogs can search for food underwater, (hide) from birds of prey. I think it should be “hiding” here, but the given key is “hidden”. Many thanks!

    I think so, but you can’t say: I can cook just as good as you if not better. Here an adverb must be used, I can cook just as well as you if not better

  • Kosha

    Hi everybody! As far as I know, “farther” and “further” can both be used in comparison. But the problem is, that in the test I’m doing the answers include both of these words.
    We never travel … than this town.
    a) far b) farthest c) farhter d) further
    I think c) and d) are the right answers, but I have to choose only one! So, is there any rule excluding either of them in certain situations?

  • Girlzcout

    as adjective as
    I know the grammar rule states this format means “equal” but I’ve always understood it to mean similar or greater. For example, he runs as fast as the wind. Doesn’t mean he runs the “exact” same speed as the wind. The light is as bright as the sun. Doesn’t mean literally as bright so can I say that they are both bright, NOT that they are equally bright? My cooking is as good as yours. I could be arguing that I can cook just as good as you if not better…. Can I say that these statements mean similar (adjective wise) not necessarily equal? like both bright (not necessarily equally bright) or both fast (not exactly equally fast)? Thanks in advance.

  • Tammie oldham

    You’re right, I’m sorry. I had not read his bio so was thinking he was just ripping people off who seriously needed to learn proper English. And it would be: “Ask me any question related to grammar.”

  • No Name

    I would say like “Ask me any question related grammar” or somehow differently. Anyway, you shouldn’t be rude, this guy has done a lot to help us as english learners.

  • Tammie oldham

    “HOW you gonna get there ???” What is your 1st language, because it is clearly not English. It would be “How are you going to get there?”

  • Tammie oldham

    ‘He asked if I had taken any photographs of the event.’ Please don’t come here for grammar advice – this is clearly NOT someone who’s an expert in the English language, much less grammar.

  • Tammie oldham

    I’m curious how it is that you consider yourself a grammar expert when even your introductory text reads like English is your second language? Case in point: “…not only you’ll get your own question answered, but you’ll also bound to come across some other question…” There are so many errors in that sentence alone! I think I’ll look elsewhere for any help with English grammar.
