    Help/grammar
    Message from happychihuahua posted on 13-10-2020 at 02:21:07 (D | E | F)
    Hello,
    I want would like to understand the following questions.Could you help me please?
    Thanks for any reply.


    I saw sth like that was a summer i will never forget and that summer was unforgettable in advance english grammar in use by Murphy.
    why" was unforgettable"?
    can i use the present tense "is"?
    In regards to my father is a man i'll never forget,why the verb here is "is ".You see,the summer is In the past and so is my father(sorry to mention,but he passed on months ago.).
    Why was a summer i will never forget & is a man that i will never forget.how to use "was" and"is" In this sort of question correctly?

    here are some sentences written by me.(although I don't understand why)
    there are some moments i 'll never forget(i had these moments with my parents)
    that is a man that i'll never forget.(he died)
    that is a girl that i'll never forget(she was my girlfriend.)
    these were moments that i'll never forget.

    Hello
    Try to be clearer , it is hard to understand what you really ask.

    That was a summer I will never forget. ok
    That summer was unforgettable. You can of course say : "That summer is unforgettable, I will never forget it," if you are the one speaking NOW.
    But imagine a writer writing a novel, or the film "Summer of '42" : The narrator could very well say, at the beginning of the film, before we have a flashbeck to the 40's : That summer 42 was unforgettable.
    Of course, the problem disappears if you change the adjective : That summer was fantastic, super, awesome, terrific...

    my father is a man I'll never forget. Correct, you are voicing this opinion NOW.

    Your examples are all correct, as you voice your opinion NOW.
    There are some moments I 'll never forget(I had these moments with my parents)
    That is a man that I'll never forget.(he died)
    That is a girl that I'll never forget(she was my girlfriend.)
    these were moments that I'll never forget.
    I is always written in capital letters, wherever it might be in a sentence, when it is a subject pronoun.
