Hi, Stephen.I got a question:
She firmly believed John to be telling the truth
means: John was going to say the truth, but that speech hadn't happened yet
She firmly believed that John was telling the truth
means: same as above or --- his talking and her thinking just happend at the same time??
Oh really? Because this is what I've learned from the US movies. I have seen this for many times that ''ve got'' is written just as ''got'' in the subtitles.I got a question:
One more little thing; in conversation, saying "I got a question" might slide by, but it will label you as not being very intelligent. Writing it down is completely unacceptable. The correct way of saying this is "I've got a question," or, even better, "I have a question."
