May I start a sentence with the expressions? for example: At times/from time to time/currently and also again/now and also then I get the impression that you do not think what I say.

You are watching: Now and then or now and again


Yes, you might begin sentences through those expressions. They"re quite functional and also can fit practically all over in the sentence. But "now and again" and "currently and also then" ought to be precursed by "every; eexceptionally now and also then..." ...actually for some factor I"m disliking "now and also again"...
Maybe this is an AmE/CanE difference, but I view no certain need for "every" prior to "now and then" or "currently and also aacquire." Of your four variants, vost, I personally would certainly be most most likely to use "At times" and also "Now and also then." And deddish is right, they fit well at the beginning of this sentence.
No, you"re appropriate, it doesn"t need to be tbelow. But... I think I"d put it tbelow anymethod. Especially for "eextremely now and again". ...Actually, I"m suddenly uncertain. Oh dear. Now I"ll actually have to think. How dare you.

But "currently and also again" and also "currently and then" must be precursed by "every; eexceptionally currently and then..." ...actually for some reason I"m disliking "currently and also again"...
It"s not so much that they "ought to", yet even more that such is common and also likely to be encountered. I agree, "currently and also again" sounds funny to me. Yes, it is a expression, however not in widespread intake in my experience.
Maybe this is an AmE/CanE difference, yet I see no specific require for "every" before "currently and also then" or "currently and also aacquire." Of your four variants, vost, I personally would certainly be many likely to use "At times" and also "Now and also then." And deddish is ideal, they fit well at the start of this sentence.
As a BE speaker I watch no need for "every" either. However before, I would certainly a lot of likely put it at the finish of the sentence: "I go to the cinema currently and also again."
Alright. Now that I"ve used my brainbox appropriately... "Now and again" sounds even more herbal at the end of the sentence, without
the eincredibly, whereas I"d use the every on "Now and also then" no matter wbelow it remained in the sentence. It would certainly be fine without, yet... yes. I simply prefer it.

Vost"s instance is a complicated sentence, so placing it at the finish mucks up our perception of what verb the phrase modifies: I get the impression that you do not think what I say now and also aget. It could go comfortably at the finish of the first clausage, though: I acquire the impression now and aget that you don"t believe what I say.

At times/from time to time/currently and again/currently and then I acquire the impression that you don"t believe what I say.
I think tbelow is likewise a distinction in definition between the phrases: At times/From time to time/(Every) currently and then Not exceptionally constant, however sometimes.Now and again Frequently. I do not recognize why, however to me, "currently and also again" just does not sound ideal here. And aacquire, if the sentence is preceded via "currently and also then", it seems to me that tbelow need to be "Every" prior to it.

I"m happy via all 4 expressions at the start of sentences, consisting of "currently and again":Now and also again, I get the impression that you do not believe what I say.Now and also aobtain, I gain the urge to rip off my apparel and run round the village barking*And I hear what you say, mtmjr, yet to me "now and again"/"every currently and again" suggests "occasionally" - just choose " now and also then", "from time to time" and also "at times". * Not true. It hasn"t taken place for ages.
I think tbelow is additionally a difference in interpretation in between the phrases: At times/From time to time/(Every) now and also then Not exceptionally constant, however occasionally.Now and aacquire Frequently. I do not know why, but to me, "currently and again" simply does not sound ideal right here. And aget, if the sentence is predelivered via "now and then", it seems to me that tbelow have to be "Every" before it.
Now and aacquire meaning typically as opposed to occasionally for the others.... interesting. The others are certainly not extremely regularly yet I would not go so far as to say frequently. Do we have a voting switch facility or a good solid set of recommendation material????? GF.. See Loob just above this post...

My interpretation of "currently and also again" might easily be incorrect. Given that I don"t usage it (nor have actually I heard it provided casually), I cannot be certain. However before, it seems to me utilizing the word "again" is more powerful than the other phrases (as in "aobtain and also aobtain...and aacquire...and so on.). ...Of course, I can just be grasping at threads.
I view why you might be being led astray by "aget and also again", mjmtr. Now and aget, similar things occur to me. But not often
