    In that case can anyone advise of a weblink where I can be referred to popular phrases. NB it is not an assignment, I am improving my grammar with exercises from a book; the book has no answers.

    If you look up "snarl", you will find there are two possible meanings: an angry sound or a tangle/knot. Choose your noun to match.

    Again, if you look up "roll", you will find many possible themes.

    I did a quick Google search on "bellows of" and came up with some very interesting phrases.
