Hi,

We are going to a picnic tomorrow. Please come along with us.

Please wait for a bus, and I will be along at once.

I left the job when my wife came along.

She will use this forum when her computer come along in his house.

I'm not sure what you mean by #2, and I have no idea at all about what you mean by #4.

Best wishes, Clive
3 is a bit weird as well. 'leave a job' = permanently leave your employment. You left your job because you met your wife?

Hi,

Please wait for a bus, and I come along at once.

I intended to write the second sentence as, "Please you wait for the bus in the bus-stand, I will come along at once", to mean, "Please you first go and wait for the bus in the bus-stand, I will be in the bus-stand, immediately, after just a minute or seconds before you get into the bus".

And as to the third and fourth sentence, I applied the following meaning in my sentence :

come along (EXIST) phrasal verb
to start to exist:
I gave up climbing when my first child came along.

So, I mean by the fourth sentence that, "She can't use this forum because currently she don't have pc at home but soon after it exist in her house she will use this forum".
Hi,

Please wait for a bus, and I come along at once Please wait for a bus, and I will come along very soon.

She will use this forum when her computer come along in his house. She can't use this Forum currently because she doesn't have a PC at home, but when it ocomes along she will be able to.

come along (EXIST) phrasal verb
to start to exist:
I gave up climbing when my first child came along.


Gary, I don't consider this to be a full definition. These idiomatic expressions can sometimes be tricky to use, and even to explain fully. Let me add a few coments for you to think about.

'come along' typically suggests:

The thing is not a surprise

The thing is familiar

The thing is close, not far away

The thing does not have great importance

Now, write a few sentences and post them for comments, OK?Emotion: smile

Hi,

As I said, it's hard to use this idiom well.

I will leave my smoking when I come along with my wife. I don't know what you mean by 'when I come along with my wife'.

Right now, I can't construct a big bungalow due to money problem, but when itEmotion: money comes along in plenty I will be able to. OK if you think there's a reasonable chance that money is going to arrive very soon.

I am happy when you all come along in this forum. Marginally OK. But an internet place does not sound like something we come or go to physically.

Best wishes, Clive

Thank you Clive.

Sorry it's a mistake.

I think, it should be, "I will leave my smoking when my wife come along". Am I right?

This example resembles the dictionary example, "I gave up climbing when my first child came along".

Am I right?
