  • Based on the info we have, we can't determine the cause nor the time of death.
  • The security features on this car make it so that if a pedestrian were to cross the street and you did see him, it would stop. There are always factors that come into play. If you're going over 100mph the car won't be able to stop in time etc... (is the phrase COME INTO PLAY?)
  • I need to be facing the engine when riding the bus or else I (will) feel sick.
  • The only reason she would do that is if she had no choice but to.
  • He's an even better soccer player than basketball player.
  • The cops there are around the more scared people are.

  • Based on the information we have, we can't determine the cause nor or the time of death. The negation is already in the verb can't. But you could say, more formally, ... we can determine neither the cause nor the time of death.
  • The security features on this car make it so that if a pedestrian were to cross the street and you didn't ? see him, it would stop. There are always other? factors that come into play. If you're going over 100mph the car won't be able to stop in time, etc... (is the phrase COME INTO PLAY? Yes.) make it so that if ... is an awkward construction. You might rephrase with more than one sentence here.
  • I need to be facing the engine front when riding the bus or else I (will) feel sick. OK with or without will.
  • The only reason she would do that is if she had no choice but to. As shown.
  • He's an even better soccer player than basketball player. OK.
  • The more cops there are around, the more scared people are. As shown.
  • I listen to music while I'm walking./I walk while I'm listening to music. Both OK. But note that the action in the while-clause is regarded as the primary action, so the first version seems more logical. The second version might imply that even during a concert you get up and walk around the concert hall.
  • There was a piece of paper sticking out from under the cubicle. As shown.

Thank you CJ,

one thing about MORE,

The more havoc you wreak on the city/the more you wreak havoc on the city, the more police will be after you./the more the police will be after you.
What difference does the THE make?

Thank you
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
the more the police = refers to frequence or vigilance

the more police = refers to number of cops
one thing about MORE,

As Philip explained.

Hello CJ and Philip,

I was wondering if THE MORE and AS both work in comparisions?

1 The more (the) time passes, the less you'll want to spend time with your wife.

2 As (the) time passes the less you'll want to spend time with your wife.

3 The more you progress/go, the harder the game gets/ As you progress/go the harder the game gets.

Thank you
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
CJ Hi,

Could you tell me what you think of the AS and MORE, are the interchangealbe?

Thank you
