5. I hardly every sulk about people (???)
6. The bus journey to school takes me forty minutes (Which word is best to mean the route from home to school: journey or travel?)
7. At about six is a mistake. Correction: About six /or at six.
8. fair-skinned: pale-skinned
1. Ah, referring to hair, then yes, you could.
2. "curved-eyebrowed" no. She is curved or most probably the eyebrows are curved? Perh aps "curved-eyebrow" person.
3. Could be but I doubt that you would hear it - more apt to hear "small-mouthed" in my opinion.
4. "thick-lidded eye
5. Why not.
6. The bus route
7. Could be "at about six" but I like the other 2 chooices better.
Haven't I already gone over several of these for you? Why do you repeat them and make someone do double-work?
Please post only the sentences/phrases that have NOT been corrected for you.
