Can I say,
a. He likes to swing on the tree branch every morning.
b He walks to school every day.
c She eats cakes in the morning.
(i) ("every day', every morning" is time marker. IS that very important?
Shall we add after the sentences?
(ii) How about "all the time" and "in the afternoon"? are they time marker?
Vincent TeoDo you know what is time marker?I would say that they all qualify as "time markers"
They also consider as time-marker for present tense?
Anonymous:Yes it IS important because the time marker (every morning/ every day/ etc) indicates WHICH TENSE FORM or MOOD of the verb (present simple/present continuous) should be used, according to the meaning.
Time markers like "always/ususuall/often/never" are normally used with the present simple.
Yes, "All the time" and "in the afternoon" are also time markers...
