about Harry

Postby Cosmos » Sat Oct 23, 2004 12:20 pm

Hello, teacher!

Please help me with this.

1. I don't know much about Harry. [I know this is natural, isn't it?]
2. About Harry, I don't know much. [Is this also natural?]

Thank you very much.

1. Yes.

2. Yes, quite possible. It's an example of 'topicalization', in which a focal element in the sentence is fronted for emphasis.
