    Question Makes

    Hi, I have two questions regarding "to make":

    A) Which is correct and/or more natural? -

    1st. "Shadow makes me to feel better in such a hot day."
    2nd. "Shadow makes me feeling better in such a hot day."
    3rd. "Shadow makes that I feel better in such a hot day."

    Maybe there is a better way to say it?

    B) Can we use "to cause" and "to make" from (A) interchangeably? For instance, does the sentence "Shadow causes that I feel better in such a hot day." mean the same as the sentence (A3)?

    Thanks in advanced,
    Nyggus

    A. I think the right answer to your question is:
    "Shadow makes me feel better in such a hot day."

    Re: Makes

    I'd say: Shade makes me feel better on such a hot day. I wouldn't use either 'cause' or 'make' with 'that I'

    So, in general, "it makes that..." and "it causes that..." are not correct?

    Then, is the following sentence correct?
    "A swift rewiev process causes publishing is fast."

    Clear! And this one? - "A swift review process causes publishing fast."
