    Mais, j'ai un doute sur « myself » puisque ce n'est pas moi qui me suis « enfermé dehors » en laissant la clé à l'intérieur par exemple, c'est le vent qui a claqué la porte , ou est-ce simplement une expression toute faite avec l'ajout systématique de « myself, yourself, etc. » ?

    Merci gerondif,

    "2 The wind blew the door shut and I realised I'd ...
    -> My answer: the wind blew the door shut and I realised I'd locked myself out
    (expression trouvée dans l'autre page: I've locked myself out).
    Mais, j'ai un doute sur « myself » puisque ce n'est pas moi qui me suis « enfermé dehors »
    alors dans ce cas: the wind blew the door shut and I realised I was locked out"

    Je ne pense pas que nous puissions mettre "and I realised I was locked out" pour se libérer de mes doutes sur l'emploi de "myself", car la partie de phrase "and I realised I'd ..." est imposée. Qu'en pensez-vous ?

    Cordialement.

    Hello

    It doesn't matter whether the wind blew the door shut or not. Your not remembering to bring the key with you also resulted in your being locked out! Both expressions work. I'd been locked out or I'd locked myself out (because I didn't bring the key with me).

    Hello

    "My camera has broken down" sounds very strange to me, personally.

    In your course correction, you say: I bumped my head on and got a bruise. That is wrong, sorry.

    You can say "I bumped my head" or "I bumped my head on it", but you cannot say "I bumped my head on" without some other modifications of that sentence.

    Hello notrepere,

    As a matter of fact, I did say to my teacher I didn't understand why my answers were wrong. But, she said that "has broken" would be acceptable only if the camera was really broken and that it's necessary to use "has broken down" if the camera doesn't work any more (as for a car out of order), and on the other hand she said that the pronoun " it " was useless. Don't hesitate please to point out my possible mistakes in these few lines to me !

    Regards.

    Hello

    "it" is only useless if you leave off the preposition "on". 'I bumped my head and got a bruise' is OK.

    It would be interesting to hear from a native British English speaker as to whether "My camera has broken down" is really said.h

    Saying "My camera is broken" can mean either that the camera is damaged or non-functional.
