Hi,

For a start it need 'Does anyone know' - because anyone shows you are talking to more than one person.

Does anyone know what time we came here?
there is no relevance with this topic but the subject is "grammar" and i dont want to mess the section by making so much entries (topics) for my each question.

here comes the question...***

i am through with it.

what does it mean? ( and even i am not sure about the usage of *** is it right? )

thnx

May you translate that? or better, say that in other way?
i am through with it.

I am through with it. = I am finished with it. = I am done with it.

You could say

I would like to know what "I am through with it" means.

or

What does "I am through with it" mean?
Emotion: smile sorry for bad explanation but nevertheless thnx for reply

actually i asked 2 questions.

"here the question comes "

this was the first question. i asked if it was right usage of it and was it gramatically correct?

and the second question was" i am through with it". and this was already explained.

thnx again

I think "here comes the question" is better.
Agree.

Janissary, you are to use inverted word order if a sentence begins with the words "here" or "there" and the subject is the noun.


Here is the book you are looking for.
Here comes my brother.
There is your book.

But if the subject is the pronoun, then you use usual word order.


Here it is!
Here he comes!
There she is!

I should have said it to you before, in [url=http://www.EnglishForward.com/English/InvertedSentences/cvdrl/Post.htm ]your thread about inversion[/url]. But I missed the nuance, sorry.
Nona The BritDoes anyone know what time we came here?
Agree again. I would say exactly this way.

Hello Ruslana

You are quite correct. English speakers say like "Here comes the King" but say "Here he comes". Do you know why it is so? I once learned that it was a tradition dated back to the time of Old English. The speakers of Old English could feel "the King" as a subject and "comes" as a verb in the case of "Here comes the King". But in the case of "Here he comes", they took the whole of "he comes" as an inseparable verbal phrase.
