You will die eating that grammar

Post by covicovi » Wed Jul 17, 2019 3:07 pm

hello
is this correct?
You will die eating that apple.
and if it's correct what definition is closer?
you will die if you eat that apple
you will die because of eating that apple
you will die while you are eating that apple
this is in a poem if it makes any difference

thank you for helping :)

1. you will die if you eat that apple :ok:
2. you will die because of eating that apple :ok:
3. you will die while you are eating that apple :ok:

The original sentence is grammatically "correct".

The definitions are all ok too. Basically it could mean 1, 2 or 3, and the overall context would make that clear.
