    Default Usage of the words.

    Hello there,


    I'm a newbie here. Even though I learn to speak English for quite sometime, I'm still struggle with certain unfimilair words.

    - Catapulted:
    1. My grades were catapulted to all "A" after I studied really hard.

    2. After I got fed up with the way my parents treated me, my anger and frustation were catapulted to the point where I got physically sick.

    - delve:
    1. When I was assigned for a research paper, I knew that I had to delve myself into textbooks, Internet, and other necessary resources.

    - relentless
    1. I was relentless in looking and searching for upcoming summer sales online.

    2. Because Lisa continued to do good work on her job without realizing that her aggressive attidude was offensive, she was a relentless worker.( I really want to know if I'm correct on this one because I once I heard somebody IN THE ACTION MOVIE said "she was relentless." I have no idea what it means!)

    - eLABORATE

    1. When my sister asks me to look after her new born baby, I know that I would be able to do the job elaborately.

    2. I want to make sure that I receive good grade for my paper, so I had done elaborate research and writing for it.

    - ferocious

    1. After the earthquake, there was a sign of ferocious tsunami.

    2. Because of my boss was satisfied with my team work, it made the situation ferocious

    - **-wise
    Are there such things as educational-wise, seasonal-wise, or religious-wise. If so, how do you use them? Are there any others(other)?

    Thanks!

    THe reason that I want to know how to use these words is because I want to be more knowledgable and get fancy with my English skills. I feel that I need to sharpen my vocaburary skills.

    I have questions though. I'd like to know why these are not correct.

    - When my sister asks me to look after her new born baby, I know that I would be able to do the job elaborately.
    If elaborate means taking something with care, why it is not correct to say that I want to do the job of taking my sister baby or my nepshew in that matter with care?

    - Because of my boss was satisfied with my team work, it made the situation ferocious
    if I subsitute satisfy with unsatisfied, would that make the sentense work?

    Thanks again!
