    cease-fire / cease / shelling

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with the interpretation of the expressions in bold?

    Both countries observed the Cease-fire Agreement.
    It began to rain less and finally ceased althogether.
    The shelling ceased only late at night.

    cease-fire (n) = truce (n)
    cease (v) = stop (v)
    shelling = firing

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
