  • Why do my stepkids only speak German to my husband and won't speak English?

    They live in a German community and get their education in German. They won't even speak English to their half siblings. How do I make them speak in English? I find it rude that they won't speak the same language as the rest of the family, and it makes me infuriated.

  • Should i say "i failed the test" or "i failed to pass the test"?

    Best answer: The first is more direct. The second is actually only true if the goal was to achieve a passing grade, rather than scoring 100% correct. The word "failed" is used in different ways here. The first is scoring below a certain level on an examination. The second is failure versus success in reaching a goal,... show more

  • What language should I learn?

    My online school offers Chinese, Latin, Spanish, German, American sign language and French.

I'm going into the 9th grade - thx

  • I'm not a native. Is this sentence correct?

    Best answer: 3 should be spelled out. Rule of thumb, single digit numbers are spelled out. Double digit numbers that are expressed as a single word like "ten" or "fourteen" are spelled out. Use the actual numbers for all others. Other than that you sentence if fine. "name" not "name and... show more

    "name" not "name and surname." In fact it's OK to say "my name is Peter Rabbit..."

  • Is it possible to learn Korean using purely the internet? And books too, I guess.?

    I am 13, and I really want to learn. My parents won't let me buy anything that will help me, so I was wondering. I'm a little okay with not speaking well, but do you think I can learn only ONLINE how to read (and write) and understand what people say?

  • When using commas to add information, can you use this method twice in a row? For example:?

    Best answer: Yes, you can. As for the "the same way she always had," it's not wrong to put it inside commas. It simply means that you are providing that information parenthetically rather than as an element that is central to the operation of the sentence. Imagine you're playing a character on stage... show more
    Best answer: Yes, you can. As for the "the same way she always had," it's not wrong to put it inside commas. It simply means that you are providing that information parenthetically rather than as an element that is central to the operation of the sentence.

    Imagine you're playing a character on stage opposite another character and delivering that sentence as a line to them, but then when you get to the parts inside commas, you turn your head towards the audience, put the back of your hand next to your mouth, and say those bits as an aside only meant for the audience. People do this in regular conversation, too. They drop their voice and talk beside the back of their hand to add little side comments that are meant to be outside the narrative. If that's what you mean, then by all means, leave all the commas exactly where you have them.

    That said, setting "the same way she always had" apart from the rest of the sentence will likely make the reader wonder why. It could, for example, cause the reader to infer that you are making fun of how she always tied her hair up the same way, which the reader would be much less likely to infer if you weren't to set it apart with commas.

    Anyway, in answer to your question, yes, you can do that.

    Example:

    Jack, a clumsy boy, and Jill, his girlfriend, went up the hill, the one on the south side of town, to fetch a pale, the same pale they always used, of water, the really delicious kind you can only get fresh from a well. Jack, his balance off from trying to carry the heavy pale, fell down and broke his crown, quite severely, I might add, and Jill, having been knocked over by Jack when he fell, came tumbling after.

    As you can see from the example above, the main caveat to employing commas to interject extraneous information is it can really interfere with the flow of the narrative.
