Dear teachers,

Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

All which details, I have no doubt, JONES, who reads this book at his Club, will pronounce to be excessively foolish, trivial, twaddling, and ultra-sentimental. Yes; I can see Jones at this minute (rather flushed with his joint of mutton and half pint of wine), taking out his pencil and scoring under the words "foolish, twaddling,"

scoring under the words = underlining especially/stressed the words

Thanks for your efforts.

Regards,

V.

Right in meaning slightly off in verb form.
stressing rather than stressed

Hi cloa513,

Thank you for the proper amendment.

scoring under the words = stressing strongly the words

Thank you again for your kindness.

Regards,

V.
