  • Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?

    Best answer: "the Cygus" is the only key error, missing definite article, but in choice of words,
    "away from us" rather than away from the Sun
    The system does not orbit the sun, so there is no reason to use it as a reference.
    "picture features" may have a better word selection choice.
    Photograph, drawing, movie, animation - more specific is better
    "features" as a verb = prominent attribute

  • Would this sentence have a sense in English?

    Best answer: First, does it MAKE SENSE, not "have a sense".  To "have sense" means something different.

    Yes, it's correct. When speaking however, we'd say "...since two" or "since two o'clock", and leave off the "pm".

    Lastly, "and they BEGAN doing this at 2:00pm", to "have begun".

  • I have a question regarding the nuance of “get moving “ . ?

    I looked up the meaning of  “get moving” in a dictionary and found out that it means “to hurry”. I’ve been trying to translate a sentence into Japanese, but I’m not sure “get moving” really means to hurry. The sentence I’ve been working on is the following. “I’ll essentially be covering the do’s and don’t s of the online world starting off with simple things like keeping phones out of out of the bedroom to help with sleep and taking a break to get moving after a couple of hours on screen.”

  • Do Americans know all the english words iN the dictionary? ?

    I have been studying english, because I'm gonna work in BPO industry where advanced english is required. I have learnt a lot but I find it annoying that everytime I read articles accross the internet, or watch CNN news, I always find, read and hear new englsih words. I take down notes everytime I see or hear new words,  but it just seems endless. Do I really have to memorize them all. I have gotten used to hearing daily english conversation and I felt confident with it. I thought it was adequate, but yeah,  everytime I read articles,  I just cant understand them because there's a lot of new words in them that are unfimiliar to me. Do I really have to memorize all the words in the dictionary? In order for me to be able to communicate?

    Best answer:  
    Do you mean that the diner is STILL empty every day/night nowadays?

    If you want to say that the place had been empty every single day/night (from its inauguration to that night), I think it is better to say:
    - That night the diner was, as it haD always been, empty.
    - That night the diner was empty, as it haD always been.

  • Which word is correct?

    Best answer: Choko is correct. However, there's a slight difference. Using "our" makes the sentence more personal and self-centered. Using "the" makes it less personal and simply refers to the general area where you are.

  • Which word is correct?

    Best answer: You opt for the last to determine plurality, so use "are". "is" works, because you can see "the employees" as a set, but if you do that you usually use a collective noun, like "Neither he nor the staff is willing".
