Dear Mr. Yang

I enjoy listening to your sunday program in RTHK as you taught english lively on air. I remembered that you introduce us a reference book named "Thesaurus" dictionary" . Would you repeat to me the exact title of this book and where I can buy it ? Many thank for your
assistant !

Yours sincerely,

Benson Lee

 

Dear Benson

It is Roget's Thesaurus .
You should find it in any good bookstore specializing in English books . Or , we may order it through Amazon.com

Dear Sir,

I would like to know why sometimes we see "God bless
you" (plural verb), but sometimes we see "God knows".
Which kind of verbs should follow"God", singular or
plural verbs? Thank you very much!

Regards,
Ann

 

Dear Ann,

"God bless you" means "May God bless you "---- It expresses a wish.
"God knows"-----here "God" is the subject; "know" is the verb. It expresses a fact.
The verb has no "s" if you are expressing a wish, a worry. Use "s" if you are making a statement of fact.

Dear Mr.Yang,

How wonderful this programme let us have a vivid memory on your expressions on air! Thank you!
Please comment some of our hesitations on English usage as below:-

1.As above "as below; as shown below; as follow; as the following indicated; as below details"and also with symbol ":-" please correct thanks.

2.Legal firm always applied hereunder, therein, thereinafter, whatsoever orthe said/named ...etc" May I "use also/also use" in our common correspondence?

3.Begin of "Might and May" looks humble in question tag for presumed asituation of a case, isn't it? It's really worth for us to responding ouroverseas customers if there is something wrong by their side but we can't topoint out the mistake directly.

Long-winded I know but your valuable correction would be highly lead us survive for survival. Thanks a lot!

Dear F.Chan,

2.yes
3.If your customer is wrong, you may say, "It seems that......" or "May I point out that......" or "Perhaps you would consider that....."etc.

Dear Mr. Yang,

We know it's wrong to say " working experience" which should be "work experience". But how about "travelling experience", " waiting list", "sleeping disorder". Should there be "ing" and what other words can u think of which is wrong with an "ing"??
Or it's only "work experience " the only one which has no "ing"?
Pls advice.
Thanx.

Gigi

 

Dear Gigi,

It depends on usage:
E.g. Shock treatment
Fishing boat
Flying saucer

But it is true that most would use "ing".
