An interview 3

Postby pdh0224 » Fri Apr 30, 2004 5:14 am

Dear teacher,

"I had a daughter so depressed she hadn't combed her hair or come out of her pajamas in a month, with her baby."

Q: Let me analyse the sentence.

"I had a daughter (who is) so depressed(.) She hadn't combed her hair or come out of her pajamas in a month, with her baby."

What is modified by "with her baby"? she or come out and

combed?


All the best, :)

"I had a daughter who, at the time, was so depressed she hadn't combed her hair or come out of her pajamas in a month, with her baby."

Sorry. :( 'with her baby' doesn't make any sense to me, either. :?:

Oh! Maybe it means this, I had a daughter who was so depressed with having had a baby that she hadn't.... :?:
