Hi Kooyeen,

Is the following sentence correct?

I totally just saw this thread and posted this!

I would have written it as:

I just saw this thread now and posted in this!
Question 1:

Yankee wrote: I'd say people have responded not only exceptionally quickly but also quite satisfactorily.

Is this phrase ''not only exceptionally quickly but also quite satisfactorily'' an adverb?

Question 2:

Yoong Liat wrote: A word of appreciation would be welcome after the fast response from many helpful members..

I would have written above sentence as:

A word of appreciation would be welcomed after the fast response from many helpful members..

Is my way also acceptable or am I missing something?

Question 3:

Yankee wrote: Would you prefer the word 'work' used as a verb, Jackson?

I would have written above sentence as:

Would you prefer the word 'work' be used as a verb, Jackson?

Is my way also acceptable or am I missing something?

I would have written above sentence as:
A word of appreciation would be welcomed after the fast response from many helpful members

"Welcome' in my sentence is used as an adjective, not a verb. Therefore it is correctly used.
If you used 'welcomed' as suggested, you would be using a verb and that would make the sentence wrong.

President George Bush was welcomed at the airport when he arrived in Singapore. (an example of the correct use of 'welcomed')

"Welcome' in my sentence is used as an adjective, not a verb. Therefore it is correctly used. [Adjective modifies noun or pronoun but what noun/pronoun is modified by welcome in your sentence?]
If you used 'welcomed' as suggested, you would be using a verb and that would make the sentence wrong.[I would have written that sentence as: If you use 'welcomed' as...]

President George Bush was welcomed at the airport when he arrived in Singapore. (an example of the correct use of 'welcomed')

But you can also use 'used' if you think the other person is unlikely to use 'used'. It's hypothetical.


I hope everything is clear now.

If I pass my exam, I will give you a treat. (When I use the siimple tense, in this case 'pass', I am confident of passing the exam.
If I passed my exam, I would give you a treat. (When I use the siimple tense, in this case 'passed', I am not confident of passing the exam.

I hope this gives you a clearer picture.

Is the following sentence correct?
I believe after I arrive there, I would be welcomed by every member of their family.
I believe after I arrive there, I will be welcomed by every member of their family.
Note that you have to use 'will' to be consistent with 'arrive'. Here 'welcomed' is correct because it is used as a verb.
I hope my explanation is clear.
