Hi Sir,

Can you confirm me that I am grammatically correct in these sentences without any conjunction "and" or "comma", please?


I stayed at home I watched Tv.

I stayed at home I watching Tv. (This is wrong, it needs a auxiliary verb. "I was watching Tv").

I opened the window I looked outside.

I got into the car I drove away.


Many thanks again.

You can't do any of those. And it's TV, not Tv.

John AkiI stayed at home, and I watched TV.

You need the conjunction, as shown above.
Or you can make two sentences.
I stayed at home. I watched TV.
Or you can use a semi-colon.
I stayed at home; I watched TV.

John AkiI stayed at home I watching Tv. (This is wrong, it needs a auxiliary verb. "I was watching Tv").

Yes. It's wrong. Write: I stayed at home. I was watching TV.

John AkiI opened the window I looked outside.

All your examples like this have to be corrected. You have three choices that are correct:

I opened the window. I looked outside. (two sentences)
I opened the window; I looked outside. (semi-colon)
I opened the window, and I looked outside. (conjunction)

John AkiI got into the car I drove away.

You can correct this one in the same three ways.

Try it, and I'll take a look at it later.

Thanks Sir,

We all know "that" is a conjunction, if I don't want to add "that" in. Can I treat or use " I, you, he, she, they, her, John" as a conjunction here please?


I think you are mistaken.

I believed John had broken it.

John denied he had stolen my money.

I feel she is anxious.

I found they were waiting for me.


Many thanks.

John AkiCan I treat or use " I, you, he, she, they, her, John" as a conjunction here please?

No, no, no! Those are not conjunctions.

These are the most used conjunctions: and, but, or.

Mr CJ,

Would you tell me if "John" can't be a conjunction here then which way is better in proper English, that or comma please? or maybe nothing? the way I see they are two clauses/sentences and join into one clause.


I believed that John had broken it.

I believed, John had broken it.


Thanks in advance.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
John AkiI believed that John had broken it.

Good.

OR I believed John had broken it.

John AkiI believed, John had broken it.

No. You can use "that", or you can omit "that", but you can't use a comma.

John Akiif "John" can't be a conjunction here

"John" and other names can never be conjunctions.

Thanks Sir,

I wish all the best in your life and job.
