    Cool unsettled


    This is what I wrote yesterday on my copy: "His questions made me unsettled (meaning= made me uneasy)".

    I think this sentence is a little clumsy but does it make sense?

    Thank you

    Re: unsettled

    Hi Will,

    You could say that, but you could also say "His questions left me unsettled" or "His questions unsettled me."

    For some reason, "left me unsettled" sounds more natural to me than "made me unsettled" but I don't find anything wrong with your version.
    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.
