Hi

According to my manual these sentences below are wrong. Could you tell me what's wrong with them?

1. His uncle, the same as his father, is a lawyer.

2. Like in Polish, there are no articles in Russian, either.

3. Just the same as I, Richard got married very young.

4. Just as John, I have no opinion on the matter.

5. Observe him, and do similarly to him.

6. Same way as last year, this summer, too, we'll be going to the mountains. CAN I WRITE "LIKE LAST SUMMER"

THANK YOU

To quite an extent, these are matters of style. Here are some suggestions.

1. His uncle is a lawyer, the same as his father. His uncle is a lawyer, as is his father.

2. Like/As in Polish, there are no articles in Russian.

3. Just as I did, Richard got married very young.

4. Just as John, I have no opinion on the matter.

5. Observe him, and do the same as he does.

6. Same as last year, this summer we'll be going to the mountains. CAN I WRITE "LIKE LAST SUMMER" yes, but it's not good style to repeat the word 'summer'.

Best wishes, Clive
