    bleat / baa

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to share with me your opinion concerning the feasibility of the following sentences?

    The foothills echo to the animals bleating.

    The bleat of fleecy sheep.

    He bleated out a protest.

    You, do not bleat of things what you know nothing about.

    He bleated it all over the place.

    Stop bleating about your problems.

    He treble baas for help, but none can get.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    The foothills echo to the animals bleating. =making weak, wavering cries, as sheep do

    The bleat of fleecy sheep. How is it different from non-fleecy sheep?

    He bleated out a protest. =to complain in a silly or annoying way

    You, do not bleat of things what you know nothing about. It is highly unfair for you to talk about free speech and civil rights

    He bleated it all over the place. to let others know that he had a point.

    Stop bleating about your problems. Instead suggest a viable solution to the problem that will make everyone happy

    He trebled baas for help, but none can get. = made bleating three times louder. I think the past form of treble as verb will be appropriate here.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,
