      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:45 PM
      Marcos Marcos: Tell apart is saying the difference between things!
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:46 PM
      Marcos Marcos: With or without objects!
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:46 PM
      Alex Alex: here it looks like transitive. but there are phrasal verbs that are not used in transitive form
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:46 PM
      Alex Alex:
      ok
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:47 PM
      Marcos Marcos:
      I would never use "tell apart" in this statement!
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:48 PM
      Marcos Marcos: I would go like "I can say..."
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:48 PM
      Marcos Marcos: Or "I can tell..."
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:49 PM
      Marcos Marcos: I'm talking from what I've seen in several texts.
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:49 PM

      Marcos Marcos: What's the thing with this statement?
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:53 PM
      Alex Alex: i dont understand when to say the first or second construction
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:54 PM
      Marcos Marcos: Both are okay!
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:54 PM
      Alex Alex: a man in whatsap said they both sound fine

      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:55 PM
      Marcos Marcos: Look: After I got home, I went to bed. = After getting home, I went to bed.
      Jan 21, 2019 at 2:56 PM
      Marcos Marcos: It's not a matter of sounding fine. The question is that both a grammatically correct!

      Alex Alex: after i was robbed/ after being robbed
      Jan 21, 2019 at 3:00 PM
      Marcos Marcos: Once you used "I", the subject of the statement is "I", and the verb doesn't come in its "ing" form.
      Jan 21, 2019 at 3:01 PM
      Marcos Marcos: We know that, after "after", the verb must come in its "ing" form.
      Jan 21, 2019 at 3:02 PM
      Alex Alex: ok
      Jan 21, 2019 at 3:02 PM
      Marcos Marcos: But once there is "I, You, He, She, It, We, You and They", the verb follows the respective pronoun...
      Jan 21, 2019 at 3:02 PM
      Alex Alex: i think i need to come up with more ing examples from now on
      Jan 21, 2019 at 3:02 PM

      Jan 21, 2019 at 3:05 PM
      Alex Alex: After +ing
      Jan 21, 2019 at 3:05 PM
      Marcos Marcos: That's what I said!
      Jan 21, 2019 at 3:06 PM
      Marcos Marcos: "After" asks for a verb in its "ing" form.
      Jan 21, 2019 at 3:06 PM
