    Knead the floor

    <My sweetest and respected users> "knead the floor" "Don't knead the floor too tight" "water the newly built wall" are these sentences correct?

    No, they donīt make sense. Depending on what you want to express, you may need to change one or two words.

    Re: Knead the floor

    Well, goodness!! That makes all the difference. No wonder it did not make sense!

    Knead the flour is a baking/cooking term and describes working with dough. When you make bread, you must knead the dough on the flour so it does not stick together. But I have seen recipes that tell you to knead flour into the dough.

    Not a teacher either, but have kneaded much flour.

    "Don't knead the flour too much." (it will become tough if you do)

    "Water the newly built wall" as for grammar, I have no idea what you mean by it, but having been involved in construction for many years, if a newly built wall made of stone and mortar is watered too soon, the mortar will not harden, therefore the wall would not be strong.

    This could, perhaps, be a saying similar to "don't count your chickens before they are hatched".

    I edit everything I write. I think most good writers edit what they write.

    Re: Knead the floor

    The grammar is fine. Are you talking about mud/dung walls? If so I have heard that it is correct to water them. I think it is very prudent of calinative to edit his posts, we can all make inadvertant mistakes when responding to questions.
