    remaking of six sentences 19

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough tell me whether I have used the forms of the verb “break” correctly in rephrasing the following six italicized sentences?

    1.1. He suddenly began to laugh when we asked him why he had come hatless.
    1.2. He broke into laughter when we asked him why he had come hatless.

    2.1. I’m afraid we have quarreled for good.
    2.2. I’m afraid we have broken for good.

    3.1. This dog is dangerous:; if it gets away it will bite the children.
    3.2. The dog is dangerous; if it breaks loose it will bite the children.

    4.1. He entered the office by force though the guard tried to stop him.
    4.2. He broke into the office though the guard tried to stop him.

    5.1. When we caught sight of the town-hall of our native town we started running towards it.
    5.2. When we caught sight of the town-hall of our native town we broke into a run towards it.

    6.1. You must give up your bad habits.
    6.2. You must break off your bad habits.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards

    V.

    Hi, Vil! How are you doing, my friend? Let me see if I can assist you with the following sentences!

    1.1. He suddenly began to laugh when we asked him why he had come hatless.
    1.2. He broke into laughter when we asked him why he had come hatless.

    2.1. I’m afraid we have quarreled for good.
    2.2. I’m afraid we have broken our friendship/relationship for good.

    3.1. This dog is dangerous:; if it gets away it will bite the children.
    3.2. The dog is dangerous; if it breaks loose it will bite the children.

    4.1. He entered the office by force though the guard tried to stop him.
    4.2. He broke into the office though the guard tried to stop him.

    5.1. When we caught sight of the town-hall of our native town we started running towards it.
    5.2. When we caught sight of the town-hall of our native town we broke into a run towards it. (This sentence is awkward sounding, Vil. I like 5.1 better!)

    6.1. You must give up your bad habits.
    6.2. You must break off your bad habits. (I like the sound of 6.1 better.)

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards
