    Re: one sentence

    I don't understand it either. Most likely it is a misquote.

    It makes absolutely no sense. Where did you find it?

    See my amendments above. Remember to start every sentence with a capital letter and to always capitalise the word "I". It helps to put the word(s)/sentence(s) you are querying in quotes to make it clear what you are querying. Also, please make your thread title relevant to your post. A good title for this would have been "She was not without her way".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: one sentence

    I'm sorry. The sentence is
    "She was not without the way to punish with her man."

    I'm afraid it doesn't make sense.

    Maybe you mean something like "She had ways of making her man pay for his misdeeds."

    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.

    It still doesn't make sense.

    As ems asked, 'Where did you find it?'
