Hi, languages have expressions so different from one another regarding body feelings. Can we add "-ache" after any body part like earache, fingerache, or this only applies to a specific group of body parts we are all familiar with such as stomachache, headache and so on?
If "-ache" can not follow anything, is there a general expression for pain for example when my finger got caught in the drawer, or my elbow hit on the corner of the table? Thanks a lot!
. I bumped my elbow onto/into the corner of the table, and that was painful.
. My elbow is painful because I bumped it onto/into the corner of the table.
Thank you so much!
