Hey Buds,

1) this is EVEN safer / this is safer
Is the second one wrong? why?

2) I have A lot to do / I have lot to do
Is this similar to the sentences with 'few' in them?

3) Heading THIS place / Heading TO THIS place

4) Can both of them be used?
I'll go to my place. Call me when there is work for me (I left my place and went the boss's place)

I'll go BACK to my place. Call me when there is work for me (same situation as the first one)

I apologize for posting something similar to the thread I had posted earlier. Somebody answered it! But I just want to know the grammatical rules (for the first one) involved in it (which would help me a lot)

Thanks a lot for helping me out friends!

Hi coolguy01,
1) this is EVEN safer / this is safer
Is the second one wrong? why?
-- It's okay, assuming you have the right context.

2) I have A lot to do / I have lot to do
Is this similar to the sentences with 'few' in them?

-- No, the second one is not grammatical.

3) Heading THIS place / Heading TO THIS place

-- You need the preposition.

4) Can both of them be used?
I'll go to my place. Call me when there is work for me (I left my place and went the boss's place)

I'll go BACK to my place. Call me when there is work for me (same situation as the first one)

I apologize for posting something similar to the thread I had posted earlier. Somebody answered it! But I just want to know the grammatical rules (for the first one) involved in it (which would help me a lot)
-- Both are grammatical. You can go "back" to your place only if you were there first. We also would use "back home" only if you were there relatively recently. For example, if I got to work at 8 am and said I was going "back home" it would probably be before 10 or 11 am. After that, I'd probably just say I was going home.

coolguy01 1) this is EVEN safer / this is safer
Is the second one wrong? why? Yes. It needs a capital letter and a period.

2) I have A lot to do / I have lot to do I have lots to do would be okay.

Is this similar to the sentences with 'few' in them? Where are they?

3) Heading THIS place / Heading TO THIS place (okay as a participial phrase) Heading this way works. The examples in #3 are not sentences.

4) Can both of them be used?
I'll go to my place. Call me when there is work for me (I left my place and went the boss's place)

I'll go BACK to my place. Call me when there is work for me (same situation as the first one)

These are okay.

Hi,

1) this is EVEN safer / this is safer

Is the second one wrong? why?

No, it's fine. 'Even' is an intensifier.

Here is a typical example.

A is extremely safe.

B is even safer.

2) I have A lot to do This is correct

/ I have lot to do This is incorrect. You could say 'I have lots to do'.

Is this similar to the sentences with 'few' in them?

3) Heading THIS place / Heading TO THIS place

The former is not correct.

4) Can both of them be used? I'll go to my place. Call me when there is work for me (I left my place and went the boss's place)

I'll go BACK to my place. Call me when there is work for me (same situation as the first one)

Both are OK. The use of 'back' indicates and/or stresses that you were formerly there.

We usually speak to our boss more politely.
