    to pop into I popped into the shop on my way home
    forms of a game needs context
    to stsop for...sth needs context
    i watched the world go by After I retired, I sat on the porch and watched the world go by
    queue look up in a dictionary: OneLook Dictionary Search is a good place to start
    wooden posts Without context, posts made of wood
    to demand for needs context
    crack of dawn I woke at the crack of dawn.
    to head off Hey, guys, let's head him off at the pass!
    suspicion look up in a dictionary
    set of friends What a fine set of friends you have - none came to help you when you fell over.
    to set up You set up an interesting problem in this post.
