    Re: Can you help me with this sentence?

    Why's that? ok, it's a base for Romanic languages but French wouldn't have been no use in either of the sentences in question, n' est-ce pas?

    Peut-Ítre, he says with twisted lip and the raise of a nostril.

    I'll send flowers

    Merely because a word exists, & its Webster entry validates it, doesn't mean it'll work. I'd bet that 9 of 10 editors would instantly (instanter!) change it to camaraderie.

    In similar light, has any of you ever attempted to get renasence into print? A perfectly good word, & it evolved properly into English rather than being swiped... but I bet you've never seen it, with clear preference for its Francophilic cousin renaissance.

    Mya's list is a good bunch of examples. And what's the English word for gestalt, anyway?

    The biggest problem with the original sentence is that it reads like a commentary upon the story. This kicks the reader out of immersion, with hobnail boots. When you do that, it almost guarantees unpublishability.

    I don't think anyone had a thought of publishing the drivel, however we did seem to be having some fun.
