    Default ring bell

    Hello teachers,

    I have a question and I hope you can help me.

    Which version is correct?or perhaps both?

    'ringing of the bell' and 'ringbell'?

    please help.
    Thank you.

    Dear Guest:

    More context would be helpful, but I can say that 'ringbell' is probably not what you want.
    One can say something like, 'The ringing of the bell woke the people early in the morning.'

    I hope this is helpful. Feel free to respond if you would like further clarification.

    Petra
