I am learning the phrase" a sheet of rain" and I saw a sentence as follows:
"Sheets of rain slanted across the road."
I don't know the meaning of the word"slant" so I looked it up.
My source says slant means to be or move at an angle that is not 90 degrees.
I still don't understand what the sentence mean.
Could you rephrase it or clarify for me?
Thanks a lot!
It means the rain didn't fall down perpendicular to the ground, it came down diagonally. Take a look at this happy birthday smiley. Its hat is on at a slant.
