Hello. I'll appreciate it if you answer my questions:
1)is it possible to say "Thousands of Egyptians conducted a meeting in Cairo" (meaning "held a protest")or is the word "meeting" something like "discussion"?
2)is it possible to use "confine" in the structure "a confined man" (meaning "a jailed man")?
Thank you very much.

  • English -

    1) They might have held a meeting. But considering the news, a more accurate sentence would be: "Thousands of Egyptians protested in Cairo."

    2) A jailed man is more exact. Confined could mean he was bed-ridden or in a hospital.
