    Re: 5 simple questions

    1. Seeing as America is also known as the "Great American Melting Pot," I don't think there is one type of American nose to describe.
    2. " 1. A small pocket at the front waistline of a man's trousers or in the front of a vest, used especially to hold a watch.
    2.
    a. A short chain or ribbon attached to a pocket watch and worn hanging in front of the vest or waist.
    b. An ornament or seal attached to such a chain or ribbon."
    3. I'm not sure.
    4. alright vs. all right
    alright – is an adjective or adverb meaning satisfactory or acceptable, or not having any problems. It can also be used as a term of agreement.
    all right – is an adjective or adverb meaning satisfactory or acceptable, or not having any problems. It can also be used as a term of agreement. All right is a more modern and accepted spelling of alright.
    Ex. I think that it’s all right if you ask Susan if she’s alright.

    Caution: Academic audiences and some other audiences often consider alright to be a mispelling of all right
    I'm NOT 100% sure on this.
    5.altogether vs. all together
    altogether – is an adverb meaning completely, thoroughly or in all
    all together – is an adverb meaning all at the same time
    Ex. The student organization was altogether against the proposal, so the members denied it all together by shouting “no.”
