Mensagem:  Tom wrote: > [. . .] answer: "My uncle took me and some friends." [. . .] Hey Tom. How would us ESL'ers know how your uncle took you and some friends (there)? By using the verb "took," now he might have meant "walked," now he might have meant "driven," now "lead," now "flew" as in "walked/driven/lead/flew me and some friends down to the beach" using whatever means of transportation then available, mightn't he? I mean, could your uncle simply have walked you'all or did he resolve to drive you'all or simply lead you'all or did your resourceful uncle think he might airplane you and your friends right off to the beach?
