  1. Thank you for subbing this series, and releasing episode 4 pretty fast. :)

    There is this one small typo that I found around 13:24 on episode 4.

    "If I can't ready the money by tomorrow, the company will..."

    It should be " If I can't get the money ready by tomorrow, the company..."

  2. That's not really a typo. It's just another way to phrase the sentence. But thanks for watching our series. ^^

  3. "ready" is one of those words that is a noun, a verb, and an adjective:

    In this line, "ready" is the verb, so the verb form of "ready" is used.

  4. Yes, "ready" is the verb in the phrase, but it cannot describe the noun, since that would be breaking the grammar rule. Only an adjective can describe the noun. I once wrote the same thing like like on 13:24 in high school, and it was grammatically incorrect.

    For example saying "I saw skating James on the pavement", and that would be grammatically incorrect since James is not the action, but the person who is skating, so it should be " I saw James skating on the pavement."

    I know it is just one line in the whole episode, but when I saw it, I was like "this sentence doesn't make sense." How can you ready the money, if the money is acting like a verb while ready is being used as the subject in the sentence. It sounded like the money was already there at that moment of time, but that is not the case.

    I apologize if I wrote a bit too much, since English is my main language, and I tend to be a bit of a grammar Nazi, so no offense there. :p

  5. I accidentally wrote like twice in a row in the first paragraph of my post. and it should be "like that."

    My bad, for double posting.

  6. It's cool. We also just like to stick to certain ways if the person or persons or talking in a slang like way as well.

  7. You have to know that informal language is used in the dialogue so some rules might not apply here. Teachers in schools usually adhere to strict formal language rules in essays, so that might be the reason it was marked as grammatically incorrect by your teacher.
    In any case, "ready" can be used as a verb as far as I know.

    If that is the case, then it can't be helped. lol

    I appreciate that you cooperating with me to clear the misunderstanding with the phrase in 13:24. :)


    Yeah that is pretty much it, and I'm used to reading formal language thanks to one professor in college, so I can't blame you for it since it is my habit.

    Like Webbmaster62 said, that you guys like to stick to certain ways with the slang(informal language), when the characters talk that way.

    It just the way, how "ready" was used, really confused me at first, but now I understand, so I appreciate that you explained it to me properly since I'm not used reading informally. :)

    I can't wait to see the rest of the series with you guys, so good luck and thank you.

  9. And of course, I didn't read the rest of the entry on
    Informal. ready money; cash.

    I guess it isn't as common because it's informal, but a google search brings up some sites (and even some books on Google Books) that use "ready the money" the same way.
