Hey Gustavo. Thanks for the speedy reply. I am a native English speaker who is helping a Japanese friend to improve her English language skills. However, my grammar knowledge is not great, but it is improving, especially when I need to research the questions I am asked. I appreciate your help, in addition do you think using this forum for questions I cannot otherwise answer, is a legitimate use of the forum? Or maybe, I will just get a reputation as a grammar pest! Honestly, what do you think? Best wishes Yoozee

Of course, Yoozee. Your questions will be most welcome.
I'm not a native speaker, but have studied the language for many years (a few decades, actually). David, our moderator, combines both virtues: he is a highly educated native speaker and a great grammarian. I trust we will be able to help you with any future questions to want to post.
Just to add to your knowledge of grammar, carry on is called a phrasal verb, while carry on with is known as a phrasal prepositional verb. Similar pairs are go on/go on with, get on/get on with, catch up/catch up with, to name just a few.
I really appreciate your response Gustavo. As new grammar challenges arise I will try to find the explanation through my own research. However, it is comforting to know I can seek help from experts if I am still unsure. Best wishes and I will be back 😀
