Hello all,

1: What does bold part mean? The verb "like" here means: "Prefer or to find something pleasant."

I can't get the meaning of the whole sentence.


Mrs Bell: "I have always lived in the village, but not always in this house."

Reporter: "Where did you used to live?"

Mrs Bell:"When I was a girl, we lived at Apple Tree Farm.We used to like it there."



2: If I want to revised the sentence: "I have always lived in the village, but not always in this house."

Can the following be correct?


"I have always lived in the village, but I do not always live in this house."



Thanks.

1. "like" means "find pleasant". "like it" is a set combination; "it" is a dummy. "there" is adverbial, meaning "at Apple Tree Farm".

2. No, the tenses are mismatched. You can say:

"I have always lived in the village, but I have not always lived in this house."
