    about awning

    Hi,

    1. I guess this is called "awning", isn't it? But do you OFTEN call it "overhang" too? Or is it just another a word rarely used by people?

    2. Without the awning, the rain "would flow into the room through the window". Could you please help modify?

    3. "The wider the gap between the window's casements and the frame, the more rain will flow into the room." It just doesn't sound natural, does it?

    Thanks.

    I am not a teacher.

    1. It's an awning.

    2. Rain doesn't flow, it drops or falls or pours.

    3. This sounds fine to me provided "rain" is changed to "rainwater", or "flow" is changed to another verb as in 2.

    It's not an overhang, which is a rock formation.

    I'd call it an awning or a canopy. It's not, as a rep on a Greek holiday once said, a canapé!
