    words

    I.There's so much to memories.

    II. She was not the only member of the household who reacted strangely and unwillingly to his presence, for her kept Aunt Pitty in a flutter and a ferment.

    Are words in black type right in each sentence? Please.

    Re: words

    Generally, I agree, but the first sentence is possible in AmE in the sense of: "There's a lot to [be said of the depth and importance of] memories.

    Re: words

    There is a lot to be said of something means that it is complex and/ or interesting, so people can talk about it at length.
