  • English -

    Thomas Becket was the most venerated among English saints (Can you also say: the most venerated English saint?)
    Yes, either phrasing is correct.

    2) OK

    3) OK

    4) Only when you are happy do (grammar rule?) you enjoy the pleasures of life.
    I'm not sure what grammar rule you need. The words "do enjoy" make up the main verb of the independent clause in this sentence; "you" is its subject.

    5) Pilgrims comes from all social classes with the exclusion of (except for ) the noblemen and the peasants.
    Either phrasing works.

    6)As a matter of fact, no noblemen would have agreed to travel with commoners, whereas no lower-class people could have afforded the expense of such a trip.

    7) Chaucer doesn’t tell us his opinions about the pilgrims. He limits himself to describing them physically and morally.
    In describing them morally, how is he not telling us his opinion?

    8) The wind is personified as Zephyrus, the God of the west wind, which blows over each grove.

    Chaucer describes his appearance and profession. The merchant is a representative of the emerging middle class in English medieval society.

    9) Chaucer also wants to show how a person's profession conditioned the individual’s behavior.

    Read and compare carefully ...
