Sentence #6900841 — belongs to Eccles17

> It doesn't count. You didn't know.

Did you mean to write the following?

It doesn't count, you know.

Sentence #6148225 — belongs to LB
play the hero

> play the hero

I don't think this sounds like a logical imperative, so my guess is LB accidentally contributed this as a sentence, when he/she was trying to search for sentences with this verb phrase.

This isn't quite right.

Sentence #6894717 — belongs to kaiperkins271
I don't want to use your computer!
eng info
CK 2 days ago link permalink

> I don't want to use your computer

Somehow, an exclamation mark seems inappropriate to me for this kind of sentence in English.

Perhaps it's natural in the other language, but would more naturally not have one in English.

Sentence #6895227 — belongs to LeeSooHa

This is strange.

My stomach is like a snake with a mind of its own.
eng info
CK 2 days ago link permalink

> My stomach is like a snake with mind of its own.


What exactly is this supposed to mean?

It's not a standard idiom and it's not quite clear how a stomach can be like a snake with a mind of its own.

If this is just another nonsense sentence, I'd suggest deleting it.
It's difficult enough to learn a foreign language without having to deal with nonsense.

If other native speakers think this sounds perfectly natural, then I apologize in advance.

Sentence #2930567 — belongs to astyng
You played.

In other words, this looks more like something from a verb conjugation list rather than something people actually use.

Here is an example of something that people would actually use.

Sentence #6894720 — belongs to kaiperkins271
Don't be so harsh to us!
eng info
CK 2 days ago link permalink

"harsh to us" doesn't seem natural to me.

Google translate suggest this might mean the following.

[#1144458] Don't be so hard on yourself. (Shishir) *audio*


Sentence #4968210 — belongs to maaster
I think what's been happening in South Africa is not what Nelson Mandela wanted.
eng info
CK 2 days ago link permalink

Perhaps you mean the following.

I think what's been happening in South Africa isn't what Nelson Mandela would've wanted.

I'd suggest using all contractions or no contractions.
If this is meant to be a spoken example, then using contractions would be more natural, I think.

To me, this English sounds more like something off a verb conjugation chart than something people would really use.
