Hello, Snake master, Welcome to the English Forums!
Could you give us some examples of those sentences?
example:
The man standing by the window is John.
Change it to adjective clause please!
I was change that:
The man who was standing by the window is John.
Was I right?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
example:
The man standing by the window is John.
May I change to ' The man who was standing by the window is John '?
Yes, it's OK, but you'll have to write "is" instead of "was".
How about the sentence:
The man killing John is ThucHuy.
Teachers: We supply a list of EFL job vacancies
Sounds a bit weird...
It means " the man you see there busy killing John is TH"... as if if was no big deal to kill someone...
Maybe: "the man who killed John is ThucHuy", meaning you identify his murderer
Thanks a lot!
Yesterday, while reading Toefl book,I saw this sentence:
That building is quite weak to damage.
I think that sentence must be:
That building is quite weak to be damaged.
How about you? Do you think with me?
Hello

"That building is quite weak to damage."

I take this "damage" not as a verb but a non-count noun.
("be weak to damage" ="susceptible to damage")

But you know I'm a learner, so you'd better wait opinions from teachers.
