    Re: Some difficult sentences

    1- difficult matter, though 'sticking point' is more common, IMO, meaning an issue that impedes progress
    2- show contempt or scorn for someone openly
    3- speak politely and use good English
    4- time to finish work, etc, for the moment, even though the thing is not finished
    7- cause it to explode or start ringing, etc
    8- Talk
