Hello davelurch,

The machine is still working correctly as far as I can see. I can only assume that something has changed for your locally, such as your browser or security settings, for example. Sometimes an update to a browser or operating system can change the settings automatically, stopping certain content from working.


Best wishes,

Thank you for accepting me!

What may be the reason why my Samsung Galaxy S5 mobile doesn't support the Adobe Flash player?

Hello Sheikhbadin,

You might try searching for a web browser app that displays Flash content by doing a search for something like 'android browser flash player'. I'm not sure if that will help you or not, but I wish you good luck!

All the best,

Hello sir.The forms or structures(like used to/be or get used to etc.),gerund,phrasal verbs & conditional sentences are said to be a part of english grammar?
Is there anything that is not considered to be part of english grammar but is compulsory to learn english language?
Please explain this in detail. Thanks.

Hi again Jaspreet,

Yes, those are structures in English grammar. In answer to your second question, yes -- please see my response to your comment on a different page.

Q.Is it correct that a verb can have 5 forms that are base form(laugh),past simple(laughed),past participle(laughed),present simple(laughs),present participle(laughing)? Or there are other verb forms too?

Hello Jaspreet,

We identify four basic parts for the verb on our page on the topic:

The base form and the present simple are considered one form here, with only irregular verbs such as 'be' having different forms. The third-person ending ('s') is an inflection, not a separate form.

Thank you very much dear Kirk.
And yes i already have seen your response on that page.Just one more question dear.
Q.Only the vocabulary is something that is not said to be part of english grammar or there are other terms too?

Hello Jaspreet Brar,

The word 'grammar' is used in different ways by different people. Some people use it very broadly so that it covers all rules for forming sentences, clauses, phrases and words. With this definitiion it would include phonology, syntax, morphology, discourse, pragmatics, semantics and so on. Other people use it more narrowly so that it refers only to the rules governing how words come together to form phrases, clauses and sentences.
