Hi, Pamela! Thanks a lot!
Yesterday, I was thinking about my sentence,
and I came to the conclusion that maybe it?s
not completely correct. It has nothing to do
with “am dying/was dying” (=present/past continuous form)
Shouldn?t I use a verb such as ?see?in
my sentence?. Sometimes I think
I need a verb that makes my sentence
make sense ?cause I could say:
‘I was dying for a coke’ (=Coke can be touched,
seen… It?s material).
But, ‘I was dying for a ray of hope’
(= A ray of hope isn?t material) ?
Take a look!
1.- I was dying for a ray of hope
2.- I was dying to see a ray of hope.
Do you think both of them are right
and mean the same?
Thanks a lot!
