Does this mean "can't", "shouldn't" or "must not"?

Or does it mean all three?

He doesn't even know who called.

> Our mother always knew very well even who were the ones who didn't come back home until late at night.

This doesn't sound quite right to me.

Sentence #6703969 — belongs to Micsmithel
We have spent a lot of time searching for a parking space.
eng info
CK 23 hours ago link permalink

Note that instead of Dutch to English, it might be more useful to us if you translated into your native language, French.

Sentence #6703969 — belongs to Micsmithel
We have spent a lot of time searching for a parking space.
eng info
CK 23 hours ago link permalink

Perhaps ....

FROM:
We have spent a lot of time searching for a parking space.
TO:
We spent a lot of time searching for a parking space.

I don't know if it matches the source language, but it would sound more like something we'd actually say in English.

Sentence #6703527 — belongs to andresangelini

Sentence #6702309 — belongs to Eccles17

eng info
CK yesterday, edited yesterday link permalink

>Tom is nine inches taller than Mary.

I'd suggest changing this to something else.

We already have this pattern.

[#1028485] Tom is three inches taller than Mary. (CK) *audio*

Perhaps you would consider using http://bit.ly/tatoebawildcards to help avoid (redundant) "same patterns".

Sentence #6702283 — belongs to Eccles17
Marie reluctantly takes another piece of cake.
eng info
CK yesterday, edited yesterday link permalink

> Marie hesitates to take another piece of cake.

This matches the Google Translation, which isn't very good.

I'd suggest using the word "reluctant", assuming it matches the French.

fra
Marie hésite à prendre encore un morceau de gâteau.
deu
Maria zögert, noch ein Stück Kuchen zu nehmen.


I'd also suggest using the name "Mary."

Sentence #6628098 — belongs to errant1
From the second letter of Saint Paul.
eng info
CK yesterday link permalink

Any opinions?

Should this series be deleted?

The English isn't a sentence. Perhaps one or more of the other languages are.

eng

epo
El la dua letero de Sankta Paŭlo.
ita
Dalla seconda lettera di San Paolo.
nld
Uit de tweede brief van Sint-Paulus.

Sentence #6702199 — belongs to errant1
The chair is short enough for him.

? The chair is short enough for him.

"too low for him" / "not big enough for him"

I'm just guessing. I can't read the other languages.

eng
The chair is short enough for him.
epo
La seĝo estas sufiĉe malalta por li.
por
A cadeira é demasiado baixa para ele.
fra
