pronunciation. We don't write English as


we speak.
But phone means sound. Unphonetic
means without sound.
So I think it is not apt to call a language
unphonetic because any language is made
of sounds. please clarify my doubt.
A: 'Unphonetic' means no correspondence
between letters used in the spelling and the
sound.
English is an unphonetic language because
there is no relation between the letters used
in the spelling, and the pronunciation.
Non-phonetic is not correct here. Non-phonetic is not usually used to describe a language like English.

Q: Is it correct to say that 'They have gone to
Chennai'; 'He has gone to Hyderabad'?
Please explain with the reason and example.
A: The two sentences are correct. The two sentences indicate that they have / he has left
for Chennai.
The point is, 'have gone' is NOT used with I
/ we / you.
I / We / You have gone to Chennai - this is
wrong. These sentences mean that I am / We
/You are either on your way to Chennai or
have reached Chennai. When you are either
on your way to Chennai or being in Chennai
how can you say that you have gone to
Chennai? Only after returning from Chennai,
we say, I / we / you had been to Chennai.
Q: He had participated in the meeting - Is it
correct to use had + V3 for past perfect single action in the above sentence?
A: This sentence is wrong. We don't use 'had
+ V3' for a single past action. We use it for
the first of two past actions.
Examples:
a) The bus had left before I reached the bus
station.
b) He told me that he had seen the movie.
3. Omen = An indication of good / evil
() = Portent.
Eg: Somebody sneezing (t) when

astute politician
Astute Dull / obtuse/ slow to understand.

with Afghanistan.

Q: Sir, please explain the usage of these


words.
1) Should
2) Would
A: 1) 'Should' expresses order, duty or necessity. You should do it immediately or
you won't get any money. It expresses
strong probability too.
Eg: He should be coming now.
2) Would is a) the past form of will:
Eg: Compare: I think he will come (
h- E - --o) and I thought he
would come (
- -h- E - - o).
b) Would in the question form expresses a
polite request:
Eg: Would you mind helping me? (h

- --E--o u--?)
c) It expresses a choice ():
Eg: I would rather read a book at home,
than go to the movie (E- x

x h - d .)
d) Would express a past habit:
Examples:
i) When he was young, he would go for a
walk every morning. ( *o--

o-p W l --.)
ii) Those days he would smoke a lot (

Vx - -.)
e) In a conditional clause:
Eg: If I were there now, I would help him.

I would rather read a book at home,


than go to the movie.
= I am not there now, so I cannot help
him.
Q: Explain the difference between past perfect and past perfect continuous tense in
Telugu.
A: We use the past perfect tense for the earlier of two past actions. ( J-T

We use the past perfect continuous for an
action which had started earlier and continued till another past action. ( J-T

ux v-i, u

when the lights went out.

Q: We have received many complaints from


customers and have appointed an auditor to
help us identify the reason for the VARIOUS DELAYS - Why we use various delay
in place of various delays?
A: 'Delay' is both countable (\ dN) and
uncountable (\ d-EN). When it is used
as a countable, it is singular, and when it is
uncountable, it is used in the plural. When
you use various (= of different kinds)
before it, the plural form, delays is correct.
