Which would you say :

Season 4 has just gotten started, so we don't know what kind of trend it'll set.

Season 4 has just gotten underway, so we don't know hat kind of trend it'll set.

Season 4 is getting started, ...

Season 4 is getting underway, ...

are both GETTING STARTED and GETTING UNDERWAY correct grammatically, What comes before GETTING? is it HAS or IS?

and can you say "what kind of trend it'll set" when you're talking about a show???

thank you

'IS getting'. Everything else is fine.
So you can't say

Season 4 has gotten underway?

and what would the the second clause be

"we don't know what kind of tone/trend it'll set for the rest of the season"

Isn't it

"Episode one set the tone for the rest of the season" or

"Episode one set the trend for the rest of the season"

thank you

Please read my answer again.








You said IS GETTING, That I already knew, I meant can you say

HAS GOTTEN UNDERWAY

I know you cant say IS GOTTEN.

So my question to you is if you can say the following

  • Season 4 has gotten underway

  • Season 4 has gotten started
and which you would say:

we don't know what kind of trend it'll set

We don't know what kind of tone it'll set

Episode 1 set the tone/trend for the rest of the season.

I'm pretty sure I didnt get the aswer to these questions, I read your answer 5 times, yet I still don't know the answer.

Thank you Miister Micawber.

I still haven't heard back, if you could let me know, Its driving me crazy not knowing.

sorry again if I wasn't clear to begin with.

Thanks

Can you please tell me what the difference is between

The festival is getting underway/has gotten underway. (can both be said?)

and is it

Season 4 set the trend/tone for the whole season.

Thank you
I think you are exhausting Mr. MM.

Yes, both can be said, BUT, until you can differntiate one from the other, don't say it by patterning.

IS getting underway = Present progresive, meaning it's happening as you speak.

Has gotten underway = present perfect, meaning the activity has already been in progress for sometime.

Instead of being busy composing more questions, you need to work on straightening out your tenses and posessives.
