    Re: phrases

    I think your phrase "I miss words when I speak" is correct, but it might be more common to say "I skip (not "slip") words when I speak" if what you mean is that you leave some words out completely.

    "The waves are coming to the shore" is technically correct, and rather poetic. It depends what you are trying to say, whether this the right way to say it!

    I hope that helps!
