    paperweight

    It took some effort for him to walk when his heavy paperweight in his pocket was againt his thigh.

    Is this sentence correct?

    Thank you

    Re: paperweight

    It should be 'against'. It's a bit of a strange sentence, but it could be correct. You say 'when his heavy paperweight was against his thigh' and I am not sure wh.at you mean by this- did he walk with it in his pocket once or repeatedly?

    Thank you very much Tdol.

    He walked with the paperweight once. He should not have bought the paperweight becuase it is againt the law. Therefore, he hid it in his pocket when he went home from the antique shop.

    Once again, thank you.

    Try 'because' instead of 'when'. -)
