- I like go to Delhi and visit it but I do not like stay it.
- I like go to Delhi on a visit but I do not like stay in it.
- I like go to Delhi on visit but I do not like stay there.
Please differentiate among these sentences?
Why not simply?:
I like to visit Delhi, but not stay there.
Your simple sentence is nice.
But I want to check if each of my sentences is correct or not.
Please comment on them.
I do agree with Anglophile’s version, although it is, as you said, simple.
IMHO, each of your sentences is grammatically incorrect, for there are some grammar mistakes that can be noticeable
Firstly, after the verb like, you should use either the gerund or the infinitive (without much difference in meaning).
I like [b]to go/going[/b] I don't like [b]to stay/staying[/b] I like [b]to visit/visiting [/b] ---> are all correct
Also, when I looked the phrase on a visit up in the dictionary,
there should be an indefinite article “a” in this set expression.
Foreigner has rightly pointed out my mistake, even though I read by my mind is “I like to go to Delhi …” only.
- I like to go to Delhi and visit it but I do not like stay it.
- I like to go to Delhi on a visit but I do not like stay in it.
- I like to go to Delhi on visit but I do not like stay there.
I think #1 is wrong.
What about #2 and #3. Please comment. Thanks.
They are all incorrect.
If they are incorrect, please correct them.
Thanks for your guidance.
First of all I would say that you have not noted the correction Foreigner has made. The verb ‘like’ should take either an infinitive or a gerund. Logically, you needn’t use ‘go’ and ‘visit’ in the same sentence unless you mean a particular place of interest in the city. The verb ‘visit’ (or even ‘go’) alone will do. The pronoun ‘it’ for Delhi (a place) instead of ‘there’ is not really suitable. When you use ‘it’, the preposition ‘in’ is necessary before it. The usage ‘on visit’ is non standard and it should be ‘on a visit’ or ‘on a tour’.
Now, please correct your own sentences yourself and recast them for others to see. (No pains, no gains. So, make an attempt). Thanks.
- I like to go to Delhi on a visit but I do not like to stay in it.
- I like to visit Delhi on a tour but I do not like to stay there.
Do these sentences satisfy the grammar requirement?
Could you help me to improve these two sentences?
They are grammatically correct but I doubt that a native speaker would ever say them. There is a difference between “grammatically correct sentences” and “natural sentences”. As for improving your sentences, why don’t you like the suggestion Anglophile made in his first post?[YSaerTTEW443543]
TOEIC listening, photographs: A man on a ladder[YSaerTTEW443543]
Do these sentences satisfy the grammar requirement? YES. (as Torsten has already said)
Could you help me to improve these two sentences? (As you insist on it, I shall try.)
- I like to go to Delhi on a visit but I do not like to stay there.
- I like to visit Delhi on a tour but I do not like to stay there. (Acceptable)
I’ve been trying to elicit what is meant by this IMHO. I guess it is “In My Humble Opinion”.
