comment “as .. as” vs. “as much … as”
From BNC: "The story is as much inspirational as sad." Does the rule "the much isn't used if there's another adjective for as to bind" apply here?

comment Mixing subjunctive and indicative, “if you tripped every time someone mentions”
@BillFranke: In your example "If you had tripped every time someone mentioned your name, you would have been dead for ten years by now", would it be the same if I put had in ". . . every time someone had mentioned your name . . ."?

comment I'm having so much fun watching
After giving it a thought, I was led to the idea that this type of construction is a result of deletion: She went home while she was crying is the full sentence which is reduced to She went home while crying which is further reduced to She went home crying. Do you think this is wrong?
