It's people friendly stuff.

Does this make sense?
Topic: I am press
Posted: Wednesday, June 3, 2020 9:07:46 AM
Is it

I am press or I am a press?

To mean a reporter.

Or do they all correct in a slightly different manner? If that so, what would that be?

1. A lot of TNT explodes in time.
2. A lot of TNT (bomb) explode in time.

Explodes or explode, which is correct?

What would those mean as nouns; can you also give me sentences?

1. See
2. A see
3. A seeing
4. Watch
5. A watch
6. A watching
7. Meet
8. A meet
9. A meeting
10. Why is a meeting appropriate instead of a meet to describe a certain gathering?

Here, you are giving shouting/yelling/screaming a general sense.


Thank you.

Here I want to ask you about "general sense". What does exactly mean to you?
Apple is general, but you never describe it other than the form "apples" to mean general.

If "shouting" is general, and it can be used for any occasions, why would you even use "a shouting or apples"?

I love eating apple.
I can't take shouting. Ask them to go away.

What's the difference? Is the first one even correct?

Yes, both might be said under certain circumstances. The first one might describe a loud mixture of voices, such as a crowd marching in the street. You could use it to describe the noise.

Thank you for your help.

If it is a mixture of sound, couldn't it be just said "shouting" without "a"?
: that's shouting in my ear.

1. That's just a shouting in my ear.
2. That's just a shout in my ear.

What's the difference? Does the first even correct?

The lyrics of Never had a friend like me from Aladdin.

1. Y'all done wound me up.
2. You got a brand of magic never fails.
3. Don't sit there buggy-eyed.

Q1. What is the verb of #1?
Q2. Is "that" omitted before "fails"?
Q3. Shouldn't there be "the" for "buggy-eyed"?

And thank you for the correction as well.
