that is what they might do to us
« on: October 16, 2013, 05:37:16 am »
Is this sentence correct:
1-Last year, my in-laws went to their cousin's place a stayed there as guests for two months. They might do that to us this year.
(meaning: they might come to our place a stay for a long period of time, maybe not exactly two months).

Gratefully,
Navi.

Yes. But I would assume it was likely to be two months approximately.

There is a tyopo ... place AND stayed ...

Thank you both very much,

A typo in 'typo' is wonderful! I can't be sure that Duncan did not do it deliberately!

Gratefully,

Actually I didn't. But you are right; I could well have done.  ;)
