    Thanks.
    See my amendments above. It's important to mark out the words you are querying in some way. I have done so by putting quotation marks around them. You needed a question mark at the end of your question.

    Let us know what definitions you find once you've looked the words up.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes, there is. Many headwords can give rise to more than one adjective, and in most cases this is because they offer different shades of meaning.

    By "headword" can I assume you mean "grace"? (See below.)
