suggest

最近仕事で使っているメーラーを事情により変えた。語法ミス(と思われるところ)を指摘してくれるおせっかいなメーラー。(つーか、エディタにW○rdを使えるメーラー)

本日メールを書いていると、そのメーラーが
We would suggest to verb....
のto verb は~ingにしろとおっしゃる。

あれ?と思って辞書を引いてみると…

え~~~!やっぱり suggest to verb はダメで、suggest ~ing と言わなければならないらしい!
あーあ。ここ数年ほど間違えたままずっと使ってた。ORZ
(propose to verbは正しいので、多分それとごっちゃにしていたんでしょう。)
でも他にも正しいと思って平気で使ってる表現とかいっぱいあるんだろうな…。

Neither did i know that!!

i've just learned that verb 'propose to~' not only for infinitive verb but also for a person, like; i want to propose to her.
my teacher corrected me.

anyway, thank you for your lecture.
see you soon.

yours, pyonta

"ORZ"は小文字にしなくても良いのでしょうか?(一応突っ込んでおきます。)

Hi pyonta!

"propose to her...." hmm, sounds good! I like the sound.
Have you already proposed to her? :-)

BTW, "i" in lower-case is cool and looks like a native speaker's writing.

Haha. To be honest, that's why i'm using it.
>Have you already proposed to her? :-)
who the hell is 'her'?! :P
