    She thrust the knife into the watermelon.

    "She thrust the knife into the watermelon". The definition related to this example is "To move one's arm or foot forward quickly". But according to me, the definition is not exactly fit with the example.

    What do you think about it?

    Thank you.

    Re: She thrust the knife into the watermelon.

    I remember answering that question earlier, but there is no sign of it now. Has a thread been deleted for some reason?

    I do not remember somebody has answered it because it was deleted at most one hour later after opened. So I thought it was out of forum rules.

    Thank you.

    Re: She thrust the knife into the watermelon.

    There was a glitch which temporarily deleted the thread along with some others. They have now been restored, but I can't explain why your reply has disappeared, Piscean.
