Topic: Came of harsh
Posted: Monday, March 18, 2019 1:42:12 AM
Something came of harsh.

How to understand "of" here?
How would this be different from "came out harsh"?

How is "feeling shyness" different from "feeling shy"?

Thank you

At a play park, a ride is in front of you.
I wish to ride it. And someone point, I will if I make that decision one more time.

In this case, can I say:
"I wish I can ride that" ?

If I use "could" it sounds to me that I am wishing something that is quite impossible to happen.
Does this sound correct?

Thanks.

Something is not clear, so if I add another example...

Person A: she called her son a Ddd
Person B: why would she ever call her child that word?

What does this would mean?
Is this sort of the same thing?

"Why would you even say that"

Here what does "would" mean?

Thank you.

Then, in respond to other's opinion that ice and lemon make mint, "I don't think ice and lemon would make mint", what does "would" mean? Is it possible or hypothetical? Is the sentence even correct?

Thank you.

Then how do you Express hyperbole for future?
For example, A says "if you are not good,I (will, would) not love you." You could say "if you weren't" but that doesn't sound something imidiate, So "are" is decided. But then what should be followed is "will", but you are not really sure whether you will definitely not love or not.
Shouldn't "would" be used for this case? Or the choice should be something else among could, might, or may?

He had to scratch.
His itch would not be quiet.

What does would mean here? Is this kind of future in the past?

Thank you.

So the key here is I "have to" use "later", is it?
