    Red face a sentence

    Every year in month of March at the village fence of the hamlet a ragged Gypsy tribe has been scattering its marquee and with a shriek of penny whistle and a jingle of a tambourin it introduced inhabitants of Macondo with the latest inventions of men of science.

    It could use some punctuation. Also "in the month of March".

    Red face Re: a sentence

    Dear teachers.

    Is my puntanctuation right now?

    Every year, in the month of March, at the village fence of the hamlet, a ragged Gypsy tribe has been scattering its marquee and, with a shriek of a penny whistle and a jingle of a tambourin, it introduced inhabitants of Macondo with the latest inventions of men of science.

    Re: a sentence

    I would say:
    it introduced inhabitants of Macondo to the latest inventions of men of science
    (The punctuation looks fine.)
