thank you for your clarification

Sunday, October 23rd 2016

Ronnie , I have still some confusion regarding to question 4 and 10. In ques. 4 Why it is not like “These are 400 dollars shoes ” and similarly in ques. 10 : Why it is not ” 800 dollars vacation”? . As you said if something is more than one so we put “s” with it. Need your help.

Sunday, October 23rd 2016

    Hello Anny ,
    400-dollar and 800-dollar are adjectives and you can’t put an s at the end of an adjective . Hope this helps
    See what Ronnie will say .

    Monday, October 24th 2016

      Yeah . I want that too, further more desription from Ronnie’s side. Thank you tsamp .This helped me a little bit. I am always confused among adjectives.Can you suggest me how do i overcome from that weakness?

      Monday, October 24th 2016

      Yes you right, Tsamp. I was ignoring the hyphen mistakenly, which was put between the adjective. I got it, why the S couldn’t fix here becuase it’s a compound adjective that comes before noun.Thanks once again.

      Wednesday, October 26th 2016

        You’re welcome !

        Wednesday, October 26th 2016

    Hi Anny, you asked that why ques.4 because dollar is countable noun therefor. ques 10. is because there is a 800 dollar so we have (a) it means that she payed only one 800 dollar. i hope it helps

Monday, October 24th 2016

    Hello Muhammad. I’ll try to help you.
    * As an adjective, the singular is used:
    “A 400-dollar shoes.”
    “A 800-dollar vacation.”
    * As a noun, the plural is used:
    “I paid 400 dollars for these shoes.”
    “She paid 1300 dollars for her vacation.”

    Monday, October 24th 2016

      A small correction:
      “An 800-dollar vacation.”
      I hope you got it. Bye!

      Monday, October 24th 2016

        Thank you very much Julio Cesar.

        Tuesday, October 25th 2016

        NO i’m still confuse could you please helpme out with this?

        Tuesday, November 29th 2016

It’s all perfectly clear if we’re talking about cats and dogs, but what if we’re talking about sheep and fish? At school I learnt that we should say “a herd of sheep” and “a school of fish”; so what if I say “I like sheep” meaning that I love spending my time with ovines, but I definitely wouldn’t eat their flesh?

Monday, October 24th 2016

    Well, sheep meat is called “mutton” (for grown sheep) and “lamb” (for baby sheep). But “I like fish” could either mean the live animals, or fish as food. Sometimes you have to rely on context.

    Monday, October 24th 2016

      Thanks a lot, now it’s much clearer and, by the way, I found the distinction between mutton and lamb very interesting.
      P.S.: if the meaning depends from context, you can rely on a formidable source for jokes!

      Tuesday, October 25th 2016

I understood, Ronnie ! Thanks a lot !

Monday, October 24th 2016

Thanks a lot Ronnie!!!Nice lesson!!

Monday, October 24th 2016

Hi Anny
Also when you see the artical before the adjective that’s it is a single. Hope this help Okay

thaanks

Monday, October 24th 2016

thank you

Monday, October 24th 2016

Thanks Ronnie,…., But I made a mistake in the question 10. I thought that I needed to add an S in the word “dollar”,…, I do not now, what happened?,…, Could you please give an explanation about that?,….

Monday, October 24th 2016

    Hi. Question 10 contains an adjective compound, and the word “dollar” is part of it.

    Basically, an adjective compound is when you use 2 or more words to describe a noun. They are placed before the noun, and you shouldn’t put an ‘S’ in it. Also, you have to write a dash (-) between those words.
    Examples: “a 7-year-old boy”, “a blue-eyed woman”, or “a 800-dollar vacation.”

    Adam made a video teaching how to recognize and use them properly. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eUM1O2pkLJM

Tuesday, October 25th 2016

Hi Ronnie, Thanks a lot for the wonderful teaching. Actually, I want your advice how do I start to learn the English grammars ? is there a step by step learning or which one I need to learn first and then carries on ?
for example; nouns – verb – adverb – adjective – pronoun – tenses – prepositions – clause – phrases………. and so on.
Which one I have to learn at the beginning and continues it, is there a pattern from 1-10 and so on…. ?

Tuesday, October 25th 2016

    hey, hi :)

Hello Teacher. I understand rules (plural..). The problem is that I cannot pronounce in right way. For example, when I pronounce the noun Books, my friend just hears /s/ and he cannot hear /k/ before /s/. I also have the same problem with the noun Peanuts. My friend cannot hear /t/ before /s/. I felt upset. Please help me. Thank you and have a good day
