Is this sentence correct?

I'd like 5 pounds top up for lyca mobile, please.

  • 3
    What is it you are asking for? Other than that you probably want to capitalize Lyca (and maybe Mobile) the sentence could be correct, or it might make no sense at all. It all depends on what you want it to mean.

  • My guess, "I'd like to buy a 5-pound top-up card for my Lycamobile, please." -- I wasn't sure what Lyca mobile was, though, so I searched for it and found en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lycamobile. Jul 21 '14 at 18:21

I assume you're adding 5 pounds to your Lyca mobile account. Sounds right to me.

  • -1, sentence makes no sense to me.

  • What part of it? And where are you from? To "top up" or "top off" something means to fill it up. Just like a cup of coffee at a restaurant, your server can "top up your coffee". This is a similar concept. Just adding a little bit (5 pounds) to something (your Lyca mobile account).

  • America. Replacing "top up" with "top off", "I'd like 5 pounds top off for lyca mobile, please," still makes no sense. "5 pounds to top off my lyca mobile account?" best guess.

  • I don't know which part doesn't make sense. If I could answer that, some of it would make sense.
