Hi,
I just saw something like this:

This is what I said two posts ago: Blah blah blah...

Does that "ago" sound good. What else could be possible? Two posts back, two posts above, two posts earlier...

Tank y-owe. Emotion: smile

KooyeenHi,

Kooyeen,

I see you are working hard with your magnifying glass ....No need to beat around the bush. You know I wrote that and you can say it.

I see no problem with "two posts ago".
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I see, thanks.
By the way, I think I saw that in one of your posts, Goodman, and that reminded me of a question I once asked.

I just wanted to ask about this specific example, which refers to "posts". It seems both ago, back, and above would be ok, anyway. Not sure why Marius doesn't like "ago", though...

Hi,

You could also say 'two posts earlier'.

Clive
I see... Two posts ago, two posts back, two posts earlier, two posts above, two posts up... I can say what I want, lol.
Thanks Emotion: smile
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
If one can say "two days ago" ,why can't he say "two posts ago"?
"Two posts ago": posts become (metaphorically) units of time. It's a slightly humorous usage.

Two buses ago, two jobs ago, two girlfriends ago, etc.

MrP
LOL...

You mean like "two naps ago .....ZZZZZZ"?
