Think But...

"He doesn't like you."

"He, don't like you."


Both are very differnt in meaning. I read the context and it seems that it is a conversation, so I guess the second could be correct if we add a comma.
I am probably wrong to assume that the second might be correct, but I am open to hear a further explanation.

Hello,

I couldn't really find any info related to the use of left here, but I'd say that left here means remaining.

This young girl has 6 months left to live

Hi,


I am not very sure, but we must use some punctuation.


By that time, it was getting dark ,so they decided to leave.


Correct me if I am wrong, but when we use by that time, we can also use the past perfect.

Hi, I just found in another website that aggrammatical is defined ,agrammatic,like this:

(Adjective) Of the nature of, relating to, or affected with agrammatism.


(Noun) A person whose language is ungrammatical, especially as a result of agrammatism.


Medicine (Agrammatism)
A tendency to form sentences without the correct inflectional structure as a result of brain damage, as in Broca's aphasia.


Boo hoo! In conclusion, I would say that the two words are different. One, agrammatical refers to organic or genetical problems, meanwhile ungrammatical refers to mistakes we sometimes make when we are learning a new language.

This looks like a very interesting topic. I searched on thefreedictionary.com and found the following:


agrammatical (ˌeɪɡrəˈmætɪkəl)
adj
(Linguistics) linguistics not obeying the rules of grammar


un·gram·mat·i·cal (ŭn′grə-măt′ĭ-kəl)
adj.
Not in accord with the rules of grammar.




I would say that ungrammatical structure is one that has a mistake, but the former is one that is against the rules of grammar.

I hardly seem to use this word to describe one thing I did while practicing my English.


I used to say that we need to keep our receipt as a proof of purchase.

Anarchy is the sure consequence of tyranny; for no power that is not limited by laws can ever be protected by them.

John Milton (1608-1674)


That's for sure 100%.
