I am looking for some native English speaker who can help me out with what seems to me a pretty dumb problem:
To any of your knowledge, does the word "doll" have a meaning, apart from "replica of a human figure, used as a toy"?
You see, for a school assignment, I need to make a sentence out of the following words: when a helps she thinks problem trouble Mary has doll her has. And it just doesn't seem to make sense to me. I know that 'to trouble' can also be a verb, but if something is troubling Mary (or the doll, you never know), the word should be "troubles", shoudn't it? As for the other words in the sentence, I don't think they can mean anything else. So I guessed that maybe on this particular occasion, a doll is not what I think it is...
