    Re: a cliff

    No.

    Why do you need to make a definition of your own when there are all these here?

    Cool Re: a cliff

    Thank you.

    I had to define "cliff" in a test yesterday and I just wanted to know if my "definition" was understandable.
    Thank you
    Will

    Re: a cliff

    Sorry, but it's not a very good definition. "Stops into" isn't an expression. And cliffs do not have to be on the coast.
