Maybe it does where you come from. But IME you'd need an extra word in there e.g. "steep price increase" or "steep price decrease". Anyhow, I understood what you meant. You said you want to buy an expensive phone (in your currency), so that means you are doing well to be able to have it in your consideration. If you weren't doing well then you might instead say "I want that <expensive phone> but I can't afford it so I'll settle for this <cheap phone> instead". Laughing

Exactly. The price is too steep for me.

i prefer android phone with pure android instead of addon ui, and hopefully with 3 to 4GB memory, and cross fingers it could lasts for another 4 years, Wink

i still think the phone and desktop os experience thing is weird, why i can't have a phone with my chosen applications only?

why it is hard to have something that you want exactly as what you want it to be?

i would suggest get those unpopular crypto coins (probably in large amount) and wait until they become bitcoin Wink

i still think, electricity is the best universal currency, network bandwidth and quota too is the best form of universal currency,

Me too. Let me know if you find something like that with a price tag of $120 or less. Android 8.0 or above is preferred. Thanks.

Well, you are still a young man; you can wait. For a middle-aged person like me, time is my enemy; I can't wait!

so far, i think xiaomi a1 is our best hope, i heard motorola will come up with something like android one project, but this brand seems to have lots of problems with their current e4 and g5 series, you could peek in motorola / lenovo official forum,

btw, lenovo k6 note also got 4gb memory,

some questions regarding english language,

1. why we must add "s" in verb for singular, and no "s" for plural,
eg. he eats, she sings, they dance, YONG dances,

2. what is the purpose of this "s" if you must define the (singular / plural) before using verb?

3. could we start a sentence with verb?

4. regarding "s" in noun, cakes mean lots of cake, sweet is only 1 sweet, but sweets got more than 1 sweet,

5. "s" only mean more than 1, but there is no guess to its quantity, it could be a lot, a little more than 1 or simply 2, (so what is the point of this "s" in noun?)

6. this and these,
is this means single object,?
are these mean more than 1 object?

? this cake is correct,
? these cakes are correct,
? is this is correct
? are this is wrong
? this cakes is wrong,
? these cake are wrong,

these cakes look awesome?
this cakes look awesome?
these cake looks delicious?
this cake looks delicious?

We don't pluralise verbs: Present simple tense adds an 's', this is not a plural (he eats). Multiple subjects (plural subjects) don't add an 's' (they eat). i.e. we don't actually pluralise verbs, we only pluralise nouns. When a verb gets an 's' is it showing present tense, not plural.

afaik, verb add "s" if the object that executes it is "singular" (in present tense),
if object that executes it is "plural" then no "s",

he loves swimming,
they love swimming,

but why? because in front of verb, we already use a pronoun to identify the executor is singular or plural,

Hehe, because that's the way it is. If you try to apply logic to the English language you will just give yourself a headache. Confused

Yeah, I agree.

In fact, I pointed out, on some other thread, the following example a long time ago:

lullaby
http://www.dictionary.com/browse/lullaby

Shouldn't the pronunciation be "LU-la-by"?

Yet, the "proper" pronunciation is "LA-la-by"!


As I regularly teach both UK and US students, I need to "adjust" my pronunciations of certain terms accordingly.

It is just one of the grammar rules of the English language. And other languages, such as French and German, have vastly-different grammar rules.

BTW, I created an online multi-currency digital wallet that supports bitcoin, dogecoin, and litecoin. If forum members, for whatever reasons, want to send me their digital coins, just pm me. Thanks in advance!

I am pleased you put "proper" in quotes. There are often multiple ways to pronounce words, and often multiple ways to spell words, and some people like to promote their one-true-way to spell and pronounce words. But in reality they are merely promoting their local dialect or some adopted higher authority. Sometimes people try to point to a dictionary and claim that what it says is the final-arbiter of everything, but in reality it is just presenting a subset of the possible uses/spellings/pronunciations of words. The language is fluid, changing, ambiguous and confusing, and has many variants. I hope people don't try to be too rigid and unaccepting of new and interesting variations of existing words. Especially in the age of the Internet where different cultures mix like they never have before and such concepts as "proper" usage vary wildly.

You should talk to those "experienced" teachers in schools and those "highly-qualified" examiners regularly marking public exam papers. Like it or not, they decide whether something is correct or not, grammatically or idiomatically speaking.

Sadly, I don't think that they would accept your opinion on this matter.

When someone needs to pass a test then I'd expect the best approach is to simply follow the local rules, and when the test is finished move back into the real world with all its imprecision and ambiguity. No matter how hard "authorities" try to proscribe things, people will just do whatever they want to.

People setting tests have different goals. At some point a line must be drawn and decisions made to determine what is "correct" and what isn't.
