This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave these specific reasons:
- "Please include the research you've done, or consider if your question suits our English Language Learners site better. Questions that can be answered using commonly-available references are off-topic." – oerkelens, Marv Mills
- "Proofreading questions are off-topic unless a specific source of concern in the text is clearly identified." – anongoodnurse, choster, Tushar Raj
The usage "name1 name2" in "....are also want to join ? " is incorrect.It should be "name1 and name2" like Jim pointed out
unless if it is denoting the first and last names of a syndicate/group.
So here we go,
"Jim and Tom are also wanting to join?"
"Jim and Tom want to join ?"
"The Famous Five are also wanting to join ?"
"The Famous Five want to join?"
"name1 and name2 also want to join?" would be right. No need to say 'are'.
"name1 and name2 are also wanting to join?" would be right.
Hope it helps :)
