Thank you.

Can I also hear other opinions?

You know this "forget +doing" construction, which means forget having done something, seems not making sense to me again.

How about these:
1. I like jumping - is this "I like having jumped?

2. I forget closing the door - closing the door isn't having closed, isn't it? And you can forget doing; why doing suddenly becomes past when it is with forget?

1. We have to cancel our going.
2. We have to cancel our go.

Do you think both mean the same? If not, what would be the difference?

What do you swear(oath) of?

Do you use "of" too? What does this mean with "of"

OAA is a name

1. The OAA develops...
2. OAA develops...

What is the difference?

There have been plenty of moments, after I’ve poured my blood into a piece, convinced it was my finest work, sure to be liked and shared and explode across the internet only to have it published

Hi,
I don't quite get the green part. Does it mean he expected a lot but all he could do was publishing?

Walking path or walk path.

To mean a trail in a park, which version is correct?

If I had gone to that path, we would be stuck there right now still.

Does this make sense?

Thank you.

Can I also hear from others? What do you think about "if you agree, I would fly to the sky" sentence; do you go through the same process like FounDit that you might add more sentences to make it clear, or you don't much understand?

Would,

1. Indicates the future in the past
2. Imagined statement in present

Do you agree the second meaning?

The example might be:
2-A. I would give away money, but I have none for now.
2-B. If you agree, I would fly to the sky.


Do you think the meaning and examples for that meaning are relatively correct?


I would say that is true. (I imagine now, in the present, that what you have written is true).


Thank you.
Then, do you absolutely think the example 2-B is correct? Usually "if" is used, it has to be the past verb, and I used the present verb.
What others think about this as well?
