    Help/going to read
    Message from xinjie posted on 19-12-2009 at 13:26:40 (D | E | F)

    can you help and tell me what the meaning of this sentence is :"
    I am going to read you some of my own poems"
    is it ask you to read my poems? or others?
    Thank you for your answers.

    in fact it means: I will read you some poems I have written => some of my own (some which belong to me => if I may say so )

    It's exactly like saying:

    I am going to read some of my own poems to you

    Subject = I
    Verb = read
    Direct object = poems
    Indirect object = to you "I read poems to you"

    "my own poems" = poems authored by me.
    "to read a poem to someone" = to recite a poem, while someone listens

    I will recite some poems. They are poems which I authored. You can listen to me.

    Best wishes -

    or you should say:
    i am going to read some of my own poems for you.
    good luck.
