    revision of a few sentences

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am on the right track by the usage of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?

    God created the world.

    Homer is the man who, according to legend, created the two great epics of Greek history: the Iliad(the tale of Achilles and the Trojan War) and the Odyssey (about the travels of Odysseus).

    Dickens created many wonderful chracters in his novels.

    create = produce, make, establish

    First of all he was created a lieutenant.

    Later he was created a baronet.

    In the end the queen created him a knight.

    create = promote

    She failed to create any profound impression.

    Her behaviour created a bad impression.

    Hay fever sneezing creates a painful feeling in the throat.

    create = cause, give rise to something

    What does he do but come in and start creating about the loss of time!

    You needn't create about it.

    He is always creating about nothing.

    The baby stopped creating and went to sleep

    create = make a fus, grumble

    The women were wearing the newest creations of the Paris designers.

    creation = production

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    First of all he was created (a) lieutenant. Yes this is BrE. I think it sounds good without a

    In the end the queen created him a knight.

    Her behaviour created a bad impression. OK

    Hay fever sneezing creates a painful feeling in the throat. OK

    create = cause, give rise to something

    What does he do but come in and start creating about the loss of time! Difficult to get to the meaning. The Google as well as Yahoo search retuned nil result. Would you please provide the source ?

    You needn't create about it. Create about is not a phrasal verb. Could it be said this way: You needn't create (about) it out of nothing.

    He is always creating (about) out of nothing. This to me sounds OK

    The baby stopped creating and went to sleep

    create = make a fus, grumble No idea. Could tell the name of the dictionary.

    The women were wearing the newest creations of the Paris designers. Ok

    creation = production

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Hi Vil,

    I have come across a number of perplexing points which you can see. Would you kindly throw some light?

    Re: revision of a few sentences

    Hi sarat106,

    Thank you again for your steadily increasing kindness. Thank you also for your amendments.

    Here are a few additional words concerning the raised questions:

    create = create a furor (WordWeb)
    furor = a general commotion; public disorder or uproar; violent anger; frenzy; rage or uproar;a sudden outburst (as of protest)
    furore: Definition from Answers.com

    He is always creating about it.
    create = bustle/fuss about

    You needn't create about it
    create = make a noise/raise an uproar/cause a stir/ make a fuss/

    What does he do but come in and start creating about the loss of time!
    Start create = start bustle

    You know: “Much Ado About Nothingnot "Much Ado about of Nothing" or “a lot to do about nothing” not "a lot to do out of noting"

    The baby stopped creating and went to sleep.
    stop create = stop make furor = stop make disorder/rage and etc. (see above in the beginning)
    stop creating = stop being naughty

    You needn't create about it.
    create about something "create" is a verb, not "create about"
    create = create a furor

    Regards,

    V.
