    Don't be frightened by big words. A 'constituent' is just a thing that goes to make up something else. Have a look here.

    Remember to write correctly on the forum. Use full English words - the word is "you", not "u". It's "because" not "cuz". When you write a username, there is no need to put "Mr" (or "Mrs" or "Miss") in front of it. Just write the username and copy the capitalisation carefully.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
