    Fill the gab

    Can you fill the gab in the following sentence: " my sister received a special gift from her fiance. In a small party, in a unique resturant he gave her the engagement ring. She felt extreme happiness and ___________ in unbelieveable way!"?

    I don't think there is a word that would fit. I would silmply say:

    She was very happy.

    Attached to the ring? It is better that she be attached to her fiance.

    You wrote a sentence with a missing word and you're asking us what you mean. That's an odd request. How can we know?

    I suppose you have an Arabic word in mind. Is it a verb or noun or something else?

    It's an odd way of improving your English.

    I suggest you write a complete sentence and ask us if it's correct.

    Re: Fill the gab

    I think you might want to go easy on the vocabulary- you're trying to load up your sentence with too many words are not always using them accurately- what, for example do you mean by a unique restaurant? A special one?
