Few years ago I came across this in a comic strip.I don’t think it’s grammatically correct, but would like you all to check this out:
“What did they used to make?”
Assuming ‘used to’ denotes customary/frequent re/action ( as in " I’m used to that.") can it be used in presence of another past tense - ‘did’ - in same sentence?
Another request is for clear rules if any for the use of “compared to” or “compared with”.
"I heard you the first time. "
I’d like to know where should the stress be, on ’ heard’, or on ’ first’, always assuming this is said sarcastically ; or come to think of it, is it always spoken with sarcasm, or exasperation or similar feeling/s too can be denoted here?
Lastly, to lighten things up a bit, this:
Me And You are Friends.
You Smile, I Smile.
You Hurt, I Hurt.
You Cry, I Cry.
You Jump Off A Bridge…
