I haven't read that work, but the first quotation sounds more like personification to me. The second could work for exaggeration. The third sounds right.

Also ... I don't understand what "come down" means in here. Is the truck coming down a hill? Is the truck coming down from a bridge or overpass? ???
July 9, 2016

English
The antecedent for "them" needs to be in the sentence or in the previous sentence. These sentences don't read right without the antecedent.
July 9, 2016

English
"follow" and "take" are the best verbs to use for this expresssion. So 1 and 3 are correct. 2 would be better if you simply omit the apostrophe and the word "advice."

They posed like models. 3 - 6 are fine.
July 7, 2016

English
Rather than saying/writing "made a pose" you need to simply use the verb form: they posed. 3, 4, 5, and 6 are fine, and so are your explanations for them.

English
1 doesn't make sense. 2 means that many students (not a few) were present, but this is very awkward phrasing. 3 is the common expression and means that many students were present. 4, 5, and 6 are incorrect. 7 is correct.

Q1 -- It's pronounced with a slight stress on the first syllable. Q2 -- The verb "delete" is the best one. The verbs "erase" or "remove" also work, but "delete" is more of a techy word!

The singular "noise" works best in all these sentences.
July 6, 2016

English
Sentences 1-3 all mean the same thing, but #1 is the most commonly used, I think. It's also a matter of perspective. Someone outside the car would not use "went" whereas someone inside the car wouldn't use "came." Only #4 has the meaning you want. ...
July 6, 2016

English
I'd use #1, #3, #5, and #6. "Hang on" is too informal, in my opinion. Using the "Hold" button on a phone leads to the "Hold on, please" request. And yes -- in #4, you need plurals since the subject is plural.

1, 2, and 3 -- I'd omit "and" and "actually." Otherwise, all are fine. 4 -- I'd omit "who served in/at" because the clause is redundant -- if she a waitress in that restaurant, then serving is what she does. You might want to write, "...
July 6, 2016

English
1 and 2 are fine; I use the expression in 2 more often than the one in 1. 3 and 4 are fine, but usually the singular form -- "comment" -- is used. 5 and 6 are fine and are the same.

To me, sentence 1 means about the same thing as 2 and 3. I guess it can mean the same as 4, but 4 is very awkward and not used. Literally, "can" means definition #1. The other definitions have evolved over time.
June 29, 2016

English
Sentences 2, 3, and 4 are saying that your home (or maybe you) is in no danger anymore and it's okay for you to go home. Sentence 1 can mean the same thing, or it can be a dismissive statement implying "we don't need you anymore."

Ms. Sue is correct. If you choose 1 or 2 or 3 or 5, you'll be choosing a comma splice. Only 4 ends up creating a complete sentence.

Technically, the word "can" is asking if you are able -- that is, are you physically able to do the task. (This phrasing is often used as an alternate to "may...") The words "may" and "might" are asking permission. #3 is not often used...

All are possible, and all are basically asking the same question. Yes, #9 along with #s 5 and 7 are the most formal (polite).
June 28, 2016

English
#1 is the slang for "may I." "Can I" really asks "Am I able..." #2 is the one asking permission. #3 is not often used, yes, and it's used more in situations when someone is really cautious around whoever's being asked the question.

All are fine, but 5 and 7 sound a bit strange since soup and broth are liquids. Those would be better phrased without the words "to eat" in them.

You're correct about 2 and 3, but if you want 1 to mean "in the station" then that's what you should write -- or "in the subway station."

1 and 3 are closest in meaning, but really, all three mean about the same thing. And yes, in these sentences, "when" and "while" would mean the same thing.

I think you're right about 1-5. In 6-8, "soon" is needed if you mean that. If you omit that word, it could mean he's on his way whether he arrives "soon" or not.
