Reply to "it is good"

Thank you very much, David,

I feel I also have to thank Gustavo! And Hassan Hussain !

Gustave definitely has made a very good point. 

I am going to try out a couple of new sentences,

What do you think of: 

a) It is pleasant drinking a can of beer after a long day's work.

b) It is nice sitting by the river in the evening, watching the sun set.

I am not sure about these two. Maybe when the participle clause is very long this structure becomes awkward. That's a theory I am testing, which if correct, would complement Gustavo's theory (which is obviously correct).

I suspect that my theory is wrong and (a) and (b) are correct grammatically, but I am not entirely comfortable with them. One minute, they seem fine, the next minute, they look wrong. (Duck/rabbit)

 

Gratefully,

Navi

PS. Sentences 5-7 would not be incorrect with a comma, would they?

Sorry about this!
