English grammatical question
I'm a native English speaker, but I'm just not sure about this sentence: Who, then, told me to make to eat a cookie, during the time in which I was taking a break.
Is that a complete sentence or is it a fragment'
i think you have too many "to"s in there.
i would say it more along the lines of "who, then, told me to make a cookie to eat, during the time in which i was taking a break."
My knowledge of English grammar is rather sketchy, and it would take a long time for me to go over my English grammars until I could analyse the whole thing, but it appears to be badly constructed, especially that "to make to eat". Otherwise, the whole line is, in itself, just a clause, not a full sentence.
I'd say it was an incomplete question since it is missing a grammatical element.
Subject = Who
to make ''? to eat a cookie=prepositional phrase serving a noun clause or direct object
during the time in which I was taking a break. (elliptical, adverbial, subordinate clause)
No matter what, it is an awkward question in English.
