    Sentences March 6

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. To make your trip to my house worthwhile, I will buy something from you.

    2. If I threw to throw a rock out of that window it would hit a starbucks.

    3. She graduated with a dean' list.

    Thanks,

    MG.

    Please give your threads a more helpful title - such as 'Do these sentences sound natural?'

    I appreciate your suggestion Fivejedjon. As you might have noticed that I post similar questions quite regularly. To differentiate between these posts, I tend to put the date in the subject. If I were to use 'Do these sentences sound natural' in each heading it would be a bit hard to distinguish between the posts.

    Another thing I can do is insert the date after 'do these...natural'.
    Is that okay?

    I made the suggestion because people using the site like some idea of what the thread might be about. Also, if you include keywords in the title, the forum software will automatically display threads with the same keywords at the bottom of the page, so you will be able to see other discussions on similar topics.
