Yes, the sentence is correct as it stands.Thanks, Johny.
Do you mean the base sentence sound right as it is?
_If you say something chocolate I suppose you are speaking of a piece of chocolate.I am very partial to chocolate, so I always have something chocolate for dessert.
The above is a stand-alone sentence from an English magazine. I find "something chocolate" very odd, and I'm inclined to put a "with" between them to sound right. Am I right? Thanks.
No, this is not correct. "something chocolate" does not mean a piece of chocolate (as I indicated in my previous post)._If you say something chocolate I suppose you are speaking of a piece of chocolate.
_If you say something with chocolate I interpret it as you want something that contains chocolate, apart from other sweets
And why don´t we say in the conext you are explaining "anything chocolate"?Yes, the sentence is correct as it stands.
I think that you're thinking of "chocolate" as the dark brown physical thing that we know as "chocolate" (such as a chocolate bar). The person who wrote the text is referring to "chocolate" as the flavour. They might want chocolate pudding, chocolate pie, chocolate cake. They want "something chocolate" for dessert.
To me this means it could be anything that included chocolate on top, on the side or as one of the ingredients but not the primary ingredient.And anything with chocolate?
