Now I am listening to the book called "Inferno" and I heard a strange sentence I didn't understand. My listening is very bad, and maybe I heard something wrong, but I really was trying to write it goodas best I could, so, it's here it is:Please, correct my mistakes, I hope there won't be too many. And could you explain to me, why the author wrote "feel myself"?Dan Brown wrote:“You've never been with a famous man.” I feel myself flush, fighting to hide a surge of emotions— embarrassment, excitement, fear. “Actually, to be honest,” I say to him, "I've never been with any man."

"Smart" refers mainly to intelligence. Clever people are usually smart, but they're also resourceful or inventive.LifeDeath wrote:Is there any difference between "smart" and "clever"?
"I haven't done anything, don't blame me".LifeDeath wrote:Is my sentence "I haven't done anything, don't blame myself!" correct? (second part).
"Meet my friend" is usually said when you introduce someone to your friend. The friend is normally present. "Meet with my friends" is like saying, "Arrange a meeting with my friends". The friends aren't necessarily present.LifeDeath wrote:What is the difference between "meet my friend" and "meet with my friends"?
No reason. It's just one of those quirks of language. "Open" is an adjective, and "closed" is an adjective derived from the past participle of "to close". EDIT: Also, I guess you're wondering why the adjective "close" isn't used. But "close" has nothing to do with whether you can enter a shop. If I say, "The shop is close", I mean that the shop is not far away.LifeDeath wrote:Why is a shop is open, but closed?

It's asking "which person(s) wants to continue living eternally?". Do/Does is usually used in questions for 1) true/false questions [Do you even lift?], or 2) with interrogative adverbs [How do you make that?]. "Who" is a pronoun in this instance, so neither applies.LifeDeath wrote:Why is the Queen song "Who wants to live forever?" called this way? Why not "Who does want to live forever?"?
It would make sense to me if the sentence was something like: "I wonder who wants to live forever". But here we have direct questions and this grammar is very strange to me.

LifeDeath wrote:1. Another song called "Is This the World We Created?" really confuses me. I have been told that we don't use any articles after the words "This, that, those, these" but why is it used here?
LifeDeath wrote:The second part of this question: I don't understand what this headlinetitle means... As I understood it means something like: "Did we create namely this world?". Is that right?
LifeDeath wrote:2. I remember there's a game called "Need for speed" so, why we use "for" here? I know some lines where "for" isn't used, like "I need help" or "I need love" and more.
LifeDeath wrote:3. How todo you use the construction "being + participle 2"? (not "be + being + pt 2") Could you show some examples?
LifeDeath wrote:4. We already spoke about Cleft Sentences, can I use it ia awith future timetense? For example: "It was not untill you will tell me your name that I tell you mine".
