I would love to be rich enough to apply paint without thinking about painting thinly cause of the cost.
I love acrylics. LOVE them.
I miss painting, I am studying too much.
I got a 64% in my Spanish test today, imperatives are HARD. I was lucky to get that.
Big Catalan writing to submit due on Thursday, I have to ask about which conjugation would be most appropriate..formality wise, Catalan has three levels, (at least) it would seem. You, as in you singular, you as in you plural and he as in third person singular, in ascending levels of formality, I think, all refering to you, as in you singular. Got that clearly? I could call you: you, y'all or he, each being more formal than the one before.
I have also figured out what complements de regime verbals are!!! I know, few of you out there are excited, and I am about to blindside you with grammar BUT, I AM EXCITED!!!! Complements are kind of like phrases and kind of like objects, as in direct or indirect.
A complement de regime verbal (CRV) (or something like that) is a type of prepositional complement (we might call that a prepositional phrase). BUT it is a specific type. It is a prepositional complement that acts as a direct object, specifically for transitive verbs (they must take a direct object, for instance the sentence, "I give" is incomplete, cause it leaves you wondering if I give blood, presents or a damn.)
SO, a CRV is a direct object to a transitive verb that must begin with a preposition (or else it is simply a direct object and I flow another way on the flowchart of Catalan pronouns). This means that it requires very specific pronouns when it is replaced, (in English we almost always would use that or it, though I oversimplify slightly). It gets even rougher though, as there are 5 possible prepositions for these types of complement, one of which takes one pronoun, and the other four or which take a different one.
Imagine me, if you will. About to say a sentence, and I am feeling wild, reckless and ridiculous and you, my dear listener are hopefully feeling patient, because as I wind into this sentence I must decide if the pronouns are to go before or after the verb (depends on the tense), then I must decide what type of complement it is, and if the verb is transitive or not, then I must analyse which preposition is in use in order to discover which pronoun to use, and then I must remember which order the pronouns go in as they generally go indirect object first, and then direct object, but some must always be first in line, and others second and still others before certain ones but after others, sort of like squabbly siblings. Finally, I must decide which of these pronouns I can and cannot combine into new and different ones, and which ones can or cannot be abbreviated onto the verb or appostrophied onto the end of a different verb.
But what happens now? I'm middle aged and I've forgotten what the f*ck I was going to say, so instead we go for a coffee.
