    Post my own philosophy on the Novel "The bomb, by Theodore Taylor"

    What I actually understand is that the main character in this story is "Sory", so when Sory and his family were deeply sleeping, they heard a strong sound (great angry, roars from the sky), meanwhile sory jumped off his sleeping mat in order to know the source of this inhabitual sound.Then, he realized that this sound was an aircraft which was circling far out over the lagoon.

    Here is one clue for your piece. The word "inhabitual" does not exist in English. I think you tried to use a direct translation of "inhabituel" in French but it doesn't work. Check the word "inhabituel" in a French-English dictionary and you will find the correct English word.

    'Sir' and 'Mr' are inappropriate forms of address here. One of those replies was from a female teacher.

    Use a single full stop to end a sentence.

    You cannot tell, unless the person's username reveals this.

    It is irrelevant whether someone is male or female. We are all simply users of this forum. If you wish to address one of us directly for some reason, then simply write the username.

    There is no need to use any kind of formal address. You can start your posts with "Hi", "Hello", "Good morning, everyone" etc. Or, you can simply start typing your question without any greeting. We appreciate the word "please" when making a request, but as Rover said, you don't need to make a new post to say "Thank you". Just click on the word "Like" on a post which was helpful to you.
