When you hear the words "volunteer work," what comes to your mind?

(In this sentence why were quotation marks used? And what other expressions can we use instead of "What comes to your mind?)

  • English -

    The quotation marks are used to point up the words that you want your audience to consider. Otherwise, they would confuse the sentence.

    You may also say, "what occurs to you?"
    "What do you think of?"
