An wrong sentence?

Postby pdh0224 » Wed Oct 27, 2004 4:42 am

Dear teacher,

"He said that he was resigning to the Press."

Someone said the sentence is an ungrammatical sentence.

Could you explain the reason the sentence is wrong?




All the best,

I see nothing ungrammatical here, only a rather unnatural choice of expressions. Better would be 'He TOLD the Press that he was resigning.'
