Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
They traveled the new route to the top of the mountain at a rattling rate.
rattling rate = huge speed
Thank you for your efforts.
HEre's what I got in the Merriam-Webster dictionary:
1 : LIVELY, BRISK *moved at a rattling pace*
Hope it would be of some help to you...
