Hi,

Could you please check for me If I am correct in these words?


To borrow money for banks, they would always survey our assets / equities first before they might have approved it. (Both words are same meaning and correct here?)

I have a good plan relating / regarding how to solve the problem. (Both words are correct here?)


Cheers

John Akiassets / equities

Assets are everything you own. This includes your house, your car, your furniture, your clothes, etc., and your equities. Equities are stocks in a company.

Institutional investors should put 75% of their assets in equities.

So they're different. People usually say 'stocks' or 'shares', but in the financial news they usually say 'equities'.

Banks will take a look at your assets, including your equities, before they approve a loan.


relating to is the correct expression.

relating money is wrong. relating to money is fine.


regarding does not use to.

regarding to money is wrong. regarding money is fine.

The full medical records relating to his cancer have not been released.

Thank you Sir~

Hi sir,

After thought, I think the second sentences was incorrect. What do you think?


1) The city has an important decision to make regarding the future of the property. ("Make" is a" auxiliary" verb)

2) The full medical records relating to his cancer have not been released. (Not a "auxiliary" verb....)


The full medical records relate to his cancer have not been released. (Not a "auxiliary" verb)

It relates to his cancer have not been released. (Not a "auxiliary" verb)

It is relating to his cancer have not been released. (A "auxiliary" verb)


Cheers

John Akiauxiliary verb

Haven't we been over this before? I thought I had mentioned this in another post several weeks ago.

The auxiliary verbs in English are be, have, and do, and the nine modal verbs (can, could, shall, should, will would, may, might, must).

There are no other auxiliary verbs.

make, relate, and regard are not auxiliary verbs.

Both regarding and relating to are prepositions in the sentences we have been discussing. relating to has more than one word, so it's called a compound preposition.

I'll underline the auxiliary verbs in the text below.

1) The city has an important decision to make regarding the future of the property. ("Make" is a" auxiliary" verb) No auxiliary verbs.

2) The full medical records relating to his cancer have not been released.


The full medical records relate to his cancer have not been released. (Not a "auxiliary" verb)

It relates to his cancer have not been released. (Not a "auxiliary" verb) Not grammatical.

It is relating to his cancer have not been released. (A "auxiliary" verb) Not grammatical.

I don't have any idea what kind of deranged scientist you're trying to be with those last two sentences. Emotion: surprise

You seem to be playing with the possibility of putting phrases together in random ways and hoping they'll make sense. Emotion: hmm

And it's not working. Emotion: sad


You've spliced two different sentences together here:

It relates to his cancer | have not been released.

It relates to his cancer is a complete sentence.
The records have not been released is a complete sentence.

You've put part of the second sentence after the full first sentence.

It's like interlocked sentences:

[I'm feeding [the cat] has four legs].

You can't do that in any language!

Let me parse these for you. It might help you understand my previous post.

[ The full medical records [ relating to his cancer ]modifier ]subject [have not been released]predicate.

'relating to his cancer' tells us which medical records we're talking about. It is a modifier within the noun phrase that forms the subject of the sentence.

[ The city ]subject [ has ] [ an important decision [to make] [ regarding the future of the property ]modifier ]direct object.

'regarding the future of the property' tells us what the decision is about. It is a modifier within the noun phrase that forms the direct object of the sentence.

Thanks for getting back to me again Mr CJ,

I was not there momentarily, after tough I am clear and understanding now. Grammar can be tricky to me sometimes.


Thanks again and regards,

John Aki
