    Red face all-out,could,personologh theory,over the edges,mounting

    1) We have reached a stage where the dire things that threaten us are so
    great that even the result of an all-out nuclear was pale into
    insignificance as unimportant compared to what's going to happen.
    • Could you correct this sentence for me?
    • What does it mean of all-out?

    2) A : May I borrow your reference book?
    B : Yes, you may. You could get some new idea from it for your project.
    • I want to make it in a polite way, should I use "could" here?
    • Could you correct the sentences for me?
    3) Everything about her spoke of power-brute force.
    • What does it mean?
    • Is it a proper English?
    4) He thinks you have gone over the edges with this personology theory.
    • What does it mean of personology theory & over the edges?
    • Is it a proper English?

    5) mounting pressure / concern / debt / evidence
    • For mounting here : does it imply the amount/grading has been going up instead of only being large ?
    • Shall I add "s" for concern, debt and evidence?

    Thank
