    ?

    Would you tell the birthing tips for women? (Please correct)

    I always want to forget my fearing time I was in. (Please correct)

    Please make any sentence using "informing" but it should behave as noun.

    Re: ?

    In other messages posted by you, the English has been much better than this. What has suddenly happened?

    n.1. Childbirth tips sounds definitely better to me.

    n.2. I've always wanted to forget that dreadful time of my life.


    n.3 Do you mean as a subject of a sentence? If so...

    Informing him was a big mistake

    Hope it helps.

    Re: ?

    Dear all,
    I can not describe it. The questions I ask sometimes, I know they are mostly wrong but by putting problem, I want to develop new way of thinking. Today I want to share my biggest problem in English language seeking any solution to get rid it. I know 80% words from a dictionary and always have studied all grammar topics very well, but still feel inexperienced.
    My main problem is -
    1- When I add any present participle with any other word (noun, adjective, verb etc) to make a meaningful pair of words which can be used in sentences as noun or adjective.

    Just like birthing choice (I think it is ok to use in sentence)
    Birthing time (I doubt it)

    Playing cards (It is ok)

    Playing condition (I think it is ok)

    Jumping show (I doubt it)

    Dancing class (It is ok)

    Dancing room (I doubt it)

    Fearing demons (I think it is ok)

    Fearing time (I doubt it)

    Swimming pool (It is ok)

    Swimming hours (I doubt it)

    Are my all doubts correct? Explain me any way to deal this problem? We generally think those correct which we have seen or heard somewhere so far, and I think you all also correct in same way. But what if any body wants to write any book, in which he happens to add any new word ( based on example given).Then how would he be sure of its correctness?.

    Re: ?

    Everything described is pretty clear except one

    Fearing demons
    By this I meant to say

    There are many fearing demons ,please don't dare to go there. (Is it not ok )

    Fearing demon- Demons who are enough to frighten others.

    Re: ?

    You have used this another way.
    Dear teacher
    When I see in dictionary, I find

    Fearing- things which exhibit fear.
    If, by combing ,I make a word
    The fearing people
    What does it mean ?
    1-People who are feared by (hidden)
    or
    2- People who fear somebody (hidden)

    Which one is correct? Or both meanings are wrong.

    When I see look in a dictionary, I find 'Fearing- things which exhibit fear.' Which dictionary was this?
    If, by combining ,I make a word phrase 'The fearing people', What does it mean ?
    If it meant anything, it would mean 'the people who fear(ed)'.
