comment Why don’t people ever say “I have wanted to ask”?
@FumbleFingers Thank you for your edit. But I don't understand why you removed "s" endings. As far as I understand "they" in this context is a singular pronoun and thus the verb should end with "s", shouldn't it?

Well, for "I wanted to ask" there are some 2,120,000 results. :-)

That's a bit surprising. I thought "want" was kind of state verb and therefore it couldn't be used in continuous form. But I've got the idea.

comment How one refers to a third person without specifying the sex or number?
And what if I saw someone in a distance but I could not determine if it was a woman or a man? What should I say: I saw a man. or I saw a woman. or I saw a person. or maybe I saw a figure.?

comment Is a “perfect participle” right?
@RegDwighт Realised only now. Would it still be correct to say the document (that) we have received? Is it common? I heard British preferred to use present perfect for such cases whereas Americans past simple. Is it really true?

comment Past perfect or past simple in combination with present perfect?
Having as poor skill in Engligh as I possess one cannot afford himself to think of such subtleties in favour of basics. But thank you for the answer.
