Edit: I'm amazed that I don't know simple things like this, and English is my first language. I suppose growing up in "The South" doesn't help any.
I'm amazed that I don't know a simple thing like this, whereas I'm amazed that I don't know simple things like these?
WesternAmericanThere's nothing wrong with his grammar.
I'm amazed that I don't know simple things like this - referring to the topic he brought up, which is the usage of lightninging and the topic is only one..
http://www.m-w.com / ), and I found an inflected form of the intransitive verb form of lightning, which was "lightninged." So, my question is, if you can add the -ed ending to it, does that allow you to also apply the -ing ending?
It [is / was] lightning. It lightninged.
Personally, I don't hear lightninged. I hear There was a flash of lightning.
Under the entry lighten, there's the alternate lighten, lightening, lightened.
It [is / was] lightening. It lightened.
These sound more familar to me.
