Hi, all of you.
Thank you my dear usingenglish forummates.

I highly appreciate who would be nice to correct my sentences:

1-I have sent my Jasmine-scented rememberances through my love letter.

2-Lily-perfumed letter was on the table.

3-I came across a cat-licked up sandwich.

4-In our farm, there are many ant-dug up holes .
Thank you , English native speakers , for your dear comments.
Have my rememberances,
Ayed
:)

1-I have sent my Jasmine-scented rememberances through my love letter.

Say:

  • I have sent my Jasmine-scented rememberances with my love letter.

2-Lily-perfumed letter was on the table.

Say:

  • A lily-perfumed letter was on the table.

3-I came across a cat-licked up sandwich.

Say:

  • I came across a sandwich that had been licked by a cat.

The original would be fine except that there is no such English phrase as
cat-licked up. (At least not as far as I know.)

4-In our farm, there are many ant-dug up holes .

Say:

  • On our farm there are many holes that have been dug by ants.

Much as in the previous sentence, there is no such phrase as ant-dug up. However, I admire your inventiveness. :wink:

Welcome to our friendly forum.

:hi:

You are quite welcome. (Omit dear in the second sentence.)

You can't use remind there. (You would have had to have told me about it before you could remind me of something.) You could say, "I would like you to know that..." Also, I wouldn't use still there. Say:

  • [list:c9ad72e6d3]I am a native Arabic speaker learning English.

Did you know that there are quite a few English words that came from Arabic? A couple of them are coffee and algebra.
