Hello teachers and the others members,
I would like to know if it is a normal use of the word downturn in a sense of fall. I give you an exemple, see below:
A stone downturn from the roof.
What do you mean about that?
Thanks for your correction, I have two questions, the first is about the word 'other' sometimes people write it with the 's', but I do not know if it is right or just a mistake whopeople make.
My second issue is the verb mean, if I write for example: she means no offence, in French we are going to translate this with the verb 'penser' I believe you follow the way of my brain. (Nonetheless, you're right about what I'd like to write).
Thanks for Gillneter, too.
I routinely write "Hi all," in my e-mails. I don't consider it poor English. Informal, yes, but not bad English.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
