Homework Help: English

Posted by Henry1 on Monday, April 25, 2011 at 5:44am.

You corrected this sentence:

Don't talk about me as ancient: Don't talk about me as if I'm ancient.

Can you explain me the difference between "ancient" and "old"?
Ancient, I believe, is no longer used or does it have a negative connotation?
If you want to express this:
Don't describe me (don't refer to me) as ancient (If you don't want your students to use this adjective when referring to a person's old age?)
The adjective was used by Daniel Defoe in his Robinson Crusoe.

Thank you
