Hello! How do you feel? Here itīs my questions. Thanks in advance!
1.- Can I always use participles as an adjective?
"The DISORIENTED (Adjective) boy died in the forest".
2.- "I was pulled along by a strange force".
I donīt know if the sentence is right. I hesitate about the verb
"PULLED ALONG" and also about "FORCE". Should it bE
"STRENGTH"? What about the verb "Pull along"? Would
you use another one?
I mean "that force or strength pulls on me but it doesnīt get
me to fall on the floor. well, maybe it gets it but
after a long time. It takes me from one place to another.
I am talking about the paranormal". If you have seen
Poltergeist, thatīs what, more or less, I am trying to say.
3.- The cries OF/FROM the little boy sound loudly.
Which preposition? I am afraid it is OF, but I really hesitate.
By the way, Could I use "Yells" to mean "stronger cries"?
Is "yell" a synonym of "cry"?
Thanks a million for all your help!
1. The DISORIENTED boy died in the forest. <correct>
2. I was pulled along by a strange force. <correct>
3. The cries from the little boy sounded loud.
4. The boy's cries sounded loud.
Loud, not strong.Could I use "Yells" to mean "stronger cries"?
No. Try, cry out. That's a synonym for "yell".Is "yell" a synonym of "cry"?
There's no need to use quotation marks ("...") in your examples:
EX: "I like cake."
EX: I like cake.
All the best.
