chasing / chasing after
chasing after is used to describe a person?
@the dog is chasing after the man
@the police is chasing after the thief
chasing is used to describe an animal?
@the dog is chasing the cat
@the man is chasing the dog
I think this question has been answered long ago.
Either "the dog is chasing after the man" or "the dog is chasing the man" is correct, but they have slightly different meanings. "After" carries the connotation that the dog will not catch the man.
Have you done? This is a present perfect tense and it shows a completed action.
It is not are you done? But it is Are you doing?--Present continuous.
