    I agree with Amigo on his corrections but these last two strike me as odd.

    Hi Amigos4,

    Thank you for your kindness. Thank you also for your diligence by the verification of the compiled of me list roll with expresions concerning the subjects "Movement of the head".

    I'm under an obligation to you for the practical amendments. I took into consideration them and be all out won't allow the presence of such misusages in my language. Thank you again for your exactingnes.

    By me all is of old, I'm going on just as before with the unequal battle with the English language. Unfortanetly, for the present for nothing. My violent efforts didn't meet with the coveted success.

    Regards.

    Hi Riverkid,

    to protract os head
    to protrude os head


    Thank you for your meticulous reply. The experienced operating surgeon have to weed out in the time the contaminated flesh in order to rescue the whole system. Thank you for your uncompromising conduct.

    I feel called to explain you my founding to use the mentioned above expressions.

    protract = prolong, make longer, stretch, extend, crane forward stretch out os neck, stick out, project,

    To crane out of a window
    He sticks his head out of the window.

    protrude = project, stick out, jut out, stick up

    His head stick/ stand out among the rest.

    protruding head

    Regards.
