Hello, everybody and especially teachers!

I have a little query about following sentences:

1) "I hope it stays that way" - Actually, person who said that, meant that "it" would stay the same or at least he hopes so. But it's used with the present simple and not with the future simpe. Why?

2) "You are being overly loud". Why can't just say "You are overly loud"? Which cases countain "be+being" when we talk about alive objects? (not about "a road's being fixed")

3) Why in songs nouns and adjectives are connected with no verbs like "to be". Example: "injustice entombed" or "connection undeniable"? Besides, it's just snippets without any relations to other sentences.

Thank a lot in advance!
Hi,

I have a little query about following sentences:

1) "I hope it stays that way" - Actually, person who said that, meant that "it" would stay the same or at least he hopes so. But it's used with the present simple and not with the future simpe. Why? The Simple Present wth 'hope' has a future meaning. That's just the way the verb 'hope' is used, particularly when speaking in the First Person.

2) "You are being overly loud". Refers to 'right now', ie the action is in progress.

Why can't just say "You are overly loud"? You can say this, but in somd contexts it can be a comment on the person's permanent character.

Which cases countain "be+being" when we talk about alive objects? (not about "a road's being fixed")

Lots. eg Tom's being promoted eg Mary's being angry.

3) Why in songs nouns and adjectives are connected with no verbs like "to be". Example: "injustice entombed" or "connection undeniable"? Besides, it's just snippets without any relations to other sentences. Songs often take a very relaxed approach to grammar.

Thank you for responding! Сoncerning my first questions, could you please exemplify a couple of sentences when we use the Simple Present while talking about the future events?

Much obliged to you!

Hi,

I hope it doesn't rain on Saturday.

Mary arrives tomorrow.

thank you!
Hello again!

I want to ask some more about "I hope" because I saw it with "will" (I hope it'll work). Wouldn't it be a great mistake if to say it with "will"?

No, I wouldn't say that is wrong. I'd just say that the Simple Present is more commonly used.
