Does this sound natural?
Can anyone help me i ve got a plural noun problem..
"If you take the inner bits of the stalk, then you can make it into tiny little fibres."
It is a sentence from the tapescript i listened to. but im not satisfied with it.
shouldn't it be " then you can make them.. " ?
The speaker was too fast for me to get around to that so i need your help. Thanks.
I think the "it" refers to the stalk. The bits themselves would already be the little fibres referred to in the last sentence.
Imagine you have a stalk. You take the inner bits out. What do you get? Tiny little fibres. So as I see it, the inner bits are the tiny little fibres. Hope this helps!
