My five questions




Hello everyone,

1) Is the word "perished" can be best replaced by the word "died" or "passed out"? And why is there a difference? This is the given usage:

"Hardest hit on that terrible day ten years ago was the Indonesian city of Banda Aceh, on Sumatra's northern tip. More than 60,000 of its 264,000 residents perished—about 35 percent of the total lost in Indonesia."

-----
2) In this following phrase, it is asked which of the events come first:

"Then the war began. During the next year and a half, Ronald completed his degree in English and then got married to Edith before being sent off to fight in the trenches."
 

His marrying Edith - His being sent to war - His completing his degree

- (It seems like "his completing his degree" the first event, but the answer key says "marrying")
-----

3) One of the following words were used wrongly:

"According to a study A) conducted in the USA, pupil-tutoring is preferred B) rather than computerized instruction and American teachers say that C) no other recent innovation D) had proved so consistently successful."

- (I thought the answer might be "rather than" and of replacing it with "to". Also, I suspected of "had proved" needed to be "have proved", but I was uncertain.)
-----

4) How is that sentence correct?

"Jean Bond, who is running the special unit from Warwick University’s education department, says that the main benefit of tutoring is that it helps build up the adolescents’ self esteem."

("It helps building up" sound like the correct form to me, why am I wrong?)

-----

5) Same type of exercise, only one is incorrect:

"The older children need A) practice in reading, but if they had to do it in their own classes, they B) would say it was kids stuff and they get embarrassed C)whoever they have to do D) it."

-(Why do we not have to say "...and they would get embarrassed" in the following part of the sentence and with what we can replace "whoever" or in what way would we rearrange that part of the sentence?)
-----

Thanks a lot for your time!

Regards,

Jan.

What is a good substitution of "inextricably linked"?



Consider the following:

Food, water and energy are inextricably linked.

Can we say?

Food, water and energy are interlinked.

Is this writing by a native?



Hello everyone,

I am wondering..my grammar book says say "There is a restaurant around the corner" but don't say "A restaurant is around the corner".

I asked about this at another place too and I understand that basically it's true and when "There is a (something) (location)" works fine better not to say "A (something) is (location)".

But when I see a grammar book says "don't say …" I feel like it's limiting the possibilities of creativity and I want to ask 'why?" Especially because my grammar book doesn't give any reason for it.

Someone found an example. Could you tell me how do you think about this writing? Is this by a native? Is this creative or just low quality?

Here it is:
"Description:
25th May 1960, To the left is Accommodation Road, a block of new Council maisonettes can be seen. This building work was carried out at the same time as the demolition of the old street. A shop is on the corner with East Grove Street, next door is number 22, moving right are 20, 18 and 16 on the right side.

(From: http://www.leodis.net/display.aspx?r...00319_78464908)"

Simple question



Hi folks,

I have been writing a little article about Enterprise Applications. As I don't understand the English very well, so I need your help again.

What is the correct form: "Enterprise Applications Architecture" or "Architecture of Enterprise Applications"?

I know it's a "dumb question", but ... I'll appreciate very much a help.

Thanks.
