Ah, could be.
or at the butcher's, a school, a bus stop, a company, anywhere. The location is no timportant I'm more interested in how different types of speaker put it. For example, at the McDonauld's, the cashier may ask "To go?" |
Anyway, two heads are better than one, that why i ask this question.
About the "rule of context", I don't want to repeat my previous remarks. There are many possible reasons behind a context-free question, maybe out of the consideration that too much preconditions may limit the imagination of repliers, maybe he/she is just "on the go", or maybe, he/she is really lazy. As for me, I never care these reasons behind. I'm just interested in the question itself. If it is interesting, I would like to get involved. If not, I just ignore it. Maybe a context-free question is sometimes annoying, but you can make some fun for yourself, or, make it even more annoying by saying "hay we have a rule here~". I cannot say you are wrong by saying that, but does that turn the post meaningful?
The above remarks are not targeting at hly2008. He is one of the finest repliers you can ever find in this forum. And I really appreciate his vigorous help. According to Zeng Guofan's criteria, I will give him Class A, or Super A, if he considers to revise the "iron rule of context".Since he said my comments are welcomed, I would like to tell him I think at least two conditions shall be exempted:A. When it comes to a technical term. B. When the question is brainstorm-purpose.
