Full of happiness

Post by STEVENSAKURA » Tue Jan 12, 2010 5:23 pm

- The thing that I'm proud of the most is my family. Although it's pretty small, it's always full of laughters and happiness.

- Are these two sentences grammatical and natural? :)

Thanks very much!

Laughter like happiness is uncountable. (I'm copyrighting that to start my greeting cards for grammar geeks company - don't steal it!)

The first sentence could also be phrased:
What I'm most proud of is my family.
My family is what I'm most proud of.

Don't forget to trademark a couple of commas too:

Laughter, like happiness, is uncountable (™ Trite-Rite, Inc.).

.. Steve my take is >>

The thing that I'm proud of the most makes me proudest is my family. Although it's pretty only small, it's always full of laughters and happiness we are always happy and laughing.

WoZ cracking up

PS .. laughters is not a word ..
