The meaning of DESPERATE
Hi! How is it going?. My question is:
Can I use the adjective "desperate" with the noun "yell" to mean
extreme yells in someone who is shouting aloud because he/she is in danger?
If not, which one do you propose?
Ex: I heard his DESPERATE yells and I rushed to call the police.
Thanks a lot!
Re: The meaning of DESPERATE
Yes,desperate is an adjective you can use when you are out of resources or means to reach a goal/purpose you are aiming for/at...when everything else has failed,when a situation is hopeless and no one else can help,then we say someone is desperate to do something...as a last resort.
