    Question Making sentences

    1. Does "sense" mean to feel? But what is "sense" used to describe? Can i say: Do you sense (feel) the cool air? <I think that's wrong>
    2. Does "peroration" mean the working out of a conflict? Could you use that word to make a sentence?
    3. Does "To be promoted" mean To advance (a student) to the next higher grade? Can i say: She is promoted?
    4. Does "to be annualized" mean to go to the next course? Could you use that word to make a sentence?
    5. Does "dysfunctional" mean your brain says something, your body says another? Could you use that word to make a sentence?
    6. Could you use "nostalgia" to make a sentence?
    7. Does "pragmatic" mean practical? Could you use that word to make a sentence?
    8. Ideal means perfect? So how about idealistic? Could you use 'idealistic" to make a sentence?

    Thanks for replies.

    Re: Making sentences

    I wouldn't use 'sense' there. I'd use it more for non-physical things:
    Do you sense the tension between them?
