Someday, he dreams of becoming a real boy.
He dreams of someday becoming a real boy.
A real boy he dreams of becoming someday
@catapostrophe Actually, it’s a single word modifying phrase to describe the complete sentence of “He dreams of becoming a real boy.” I believe, and I may be wrong here, your phrasing slips the modifier “someday” between the preposition “of” and the gerund “becoming”, which is technically legal, but somewhat awkward and requires a reread and potentially inefficient for the sake of eliminating a comma. But again, I could be wrong about that.
BTW, I heart run-on sentences!
The problem is that “becoming” is not a gerund [noun], but a past participle. The adverb “someday” is best used as a modifier for the action “becoming a real boy”.
Actually, the word “someday” could be considered superfluous. “He dreams of becoming a real boy” says it all. We can assume that he’d like to become a real boy some day. I mean, just look at him.
Ok is he dreaming of becoming a real boy or is he thinking that someday he will dream of becoming a real boy?
Someday, he dreams George Lucas will edit him out of two full term Star Wars abortions so people will stop calling him “Crybaby Vadar” on the streets.
and yes…I know.
We don’t call him “Crybaby Vader.” We call him “Darth Whiner.”
This is the best discussion I’ve ever seen on this site.
Damn it. He dreams of becoming a real boy someday.
Someday, he dreams of coming on a boy…
I don’t know about him, but I sure do.
Ahh, home again at last, where nobody knows me and I can walk the streets anonymously. Okay, you can the camera down now Mom”.
is he trying to look like Rob Pattinson?
He makes the effort to put on a stylish scarf, but he can’t tie his shoes?! Actors are idiots.
Look I’ll let you take all the pictures you want if you’ll let me crash on your couch tonight.
When is the last time this dude had a job?
Part of me still wants to hate on him but no, it was Lucas. It was all Lucas.
He was great in that Stars Movie though wasn’t he?
