Use of "Always"
by Mark Morrisson
The sentence "He always has been and always will be" is correct, although at school I learnt that "always" had to be put before the auxiliary: "He has always been and will always be". What's the correct form?
The first example is correct. "Always" follows the pronoun and comes before the verb "has been" = "to be" in the present perfect.
I don't know where to put the verb after "more than". For instance, is "more attractive than are its windows" or "more attractive than its windows are" correct?
Your second example is correct. You put the verb at the end. His dog is more intelligent than mine (is). His car is more comfortable than mine (is). Actually..."is" is not nessisary but you can include it.
Thanks in advance,
