Hello all of you,
Thanks a lot for working for me and with me ... You really did a good work ...

1) My friend came and said : « I’m sorry I kept you waiting ! »
My friend apologized for keeping me waiting (to apologize for something/for + V + ing= s’excuser de )……….

2) He’s going to get married : I don’t like it …
I don’t approve of his/him getting married. (to approve of + V +ing/ to disapprove of +V+ing)La forme ‘his getting married', ‘my singing’ ou ‘her smoking’) est BrE. et la forme ‘him getting married’(’me singing’) plutôt AmE. Elles sont toutes deux acceptées aux examens.

3)He’ll probably arrive late at the party !
He’s likely to arrive late (to be likely to do something = être susceptible de ) ‘He’s expected to ‘… était également excellent .

4)When you don’t sleep enough, you feel tired !
The less you sleep, the more tired you feel. Nous avons ici une progression parallèle (sauf que je vous ai un peu ‘compliqué’ la chose en la “croisant”; les constructions sont celles des comparatifs précédés de ‘the’: ‘the more she learns, the more she understands. ‘ ; ‘the less she works, the less she succeeds. ‘La difficulté pour les non-anglophones est de bien rejeter le verbe en fin de proposition.

5)We can hardly wait to see the latest Disney film .
We are looking forward to seeing the latest Disney film. (ici, to est bien suivi de –ing = attendre avec impatience) Expression très utilisée pour terminer les lettres (commerciales) pour les étudiants de BTS ou d’écoles de commerce. ( ….looking forward to hearing from you / to receiving your order’ etc.

6)Someone has told her what to do.
She has been told what to do (ceci est la voix passive banale). Le temps de la voix active (ici, present perfect) doit être conservé et appliqué à l’auxiliaire ‘be’ du passif.

7) She said she knew what this woman taught.
She said : “I know what this woman teaches “ . passage inhabituel du discours indirect au discours direct . C’est d’ordinaire le contraire qui est demandé. Cependant, et je vous prie de m’en excuser, j’ai fait une erreur puisque le ‘this’ du discours direct correspondait à ‘that’ dans le discours indirect … J’aurais donc dû proposer : «’She said she knew what that woman taught ». (une autre fois, si vous détectez une telle erreur, merci de me la signaler en mp … ) Sorry, sorry !

8)I waited too long before I showed them to her.
I should have shown them to her before /sooner.
OLD donne ‘rarely, showed’ CDL: ‘(showed, shown) Daily Writing tips : Lien internet

the very interesting ‘AmericanEnglishDoctor.com’ donne :
English Irregular Verbs
The verbs in this group have distinct spellings for the simple present, the simple past and the past participle. These are the verbs most often used incorrectly when the past participle form is called for. The most effective way to learn them is to practice the past participle with the forms of have. /…../
see saw [has/have/had] seen
show showed [has/have/had] shown
shake shook [has/have/had] shaken
shear sheared [has/have/had] shorn
shrink shrank [has/have/had] shrunk
Attention, contrairement à certains VI (to learn, to get …), ‘showed’ en tant que PP n’est pas (encore) accepté dans les examens. Play it safe !

9)As soon as her sister left, they all started laughing !
No sooner had her sister left, than /when they all started laughing. Ici, l’important était l’inversion du sujet après ‘No sooner + inversion de Sujet + than/when….’ than est beaucoup plus employé.)

10) I’m sure they stole my laptop last night.
They must have stolen my laptop last night Yes, I know … it would have been clearer if I had written ‘I’m almost sure’ and that’s why I considered as correct all the answers of those of you who hadn’t guessed !
Now, for the ‘80% of certainty’, I don’t know what our native friends will think … but I’ve found them nowhere, and my native friends had a good laugh at them /me when I asked the question !
J’ai trouvé sur un blog la quasi-certitude à 90% …. Mais j’ai envie de dire que pour moi, elle est au moins de 93.9999%. Aucune référence non plus à ces étranges pourcentages dans le Cadre Européen qui , je vous le rappelle fait « référence » …

Bref ! j’espère que vous avez aimé ce gentil exercice (vous avez vu que j’ai repris, en les modifiant, quelques éléments déjà vus …) Celui qui vient de sortir est, comme je l’avais annoncé un thème grammatical pur … mais nous reviendrons aux Reformulations la prochaine fois …
Merci de vos gentils messages. N’hésitez-pas à poser des questions ou faire des objections (en mp). Je répondrai toujours (même si c’est un peu en retard … en fonction de mes obligations !) You’ve all done a good 'job’ ! BRAVO et merci de votre travail !
