Hi,

The answer is 'nervous' and means the same as 'worried' and 'anxious'.

A period/full stop after the word 'nervous' might be good addition. :wink:

Hello,

Alan wrote the sentence:
Quote:
The answer is 'nervous' and means the same as 'worried' and 'anxious'.


Could somebody please enlighten me about the sentence construction?
I tried putting a full stop in the sentence after reading Yankee’s suggestion, but I got stuck on the second part of the sentence.

Yankee wrote the sentence:

Could you tell me what type of the sentence is? As far as I know, it is neither an adjective clause nor a fronting sentence.
Thank you.

Clearly as Yankee (alias Esl_Expert) has pointed out, the full stop has been left out and these should be two separate sentences:

I don't know why I was so nervous. I think flying is great!

Hello Mr Alan Townend,

Thank you for pointing out my mistake. I thought that Yankee’s suggestion was referring to your statement. I’m sorry that it was a mistake on my part.

By the way, may I know whether your statement below is called a simple sentence with two predicates?
