Topic: The way it is
Posted: Wednesday, November 01, 2017 4:48:23 PM

Is it possible to say: Somebody wants to go on the way it is? I would like to say that there are those who are reluctant to change their way of living.

Thanks in advance :)

Could you please advise if it is possible to say "from the-thick-of-it perspective"? What I want to say is that the described perception of the event is vivid and provided by the person who took part in it.

Both are a bit unclear. Do you mean there is a gap between a city and a rural area, or do you mean the rural area IS the gap between cities. If so then;

"The more the regions become inhabited, the smaller becomes the rural gap between big cities."

Thanks for your reply. I mean that the gap between the city and the countryside becomes smaller. To put it another way, they become equal in terms of facilities, life quality, etc.

Could you please advise me if it sounds fine: The more regions become inhabited the smaller the gap between big cities and rural areas is. Or I have to put it this way: The more regions become inhabited, the smaller is the gap between big cities and rural areas.

Thanks in advance!

Does this sound ok?

It usually turns out that not only the object but also the photographer are moving.

I am looking for the word for the sound you hear when traveliing by plane due to fish plates that join rails. Is it possible to call that clickety-clack?

Thank you in advance!

Is it a typo, Sophia? Or do we have a meaning of 'plane' that says 'train' or 'coach' or bogie'?

I want to know. We use plane for airplanes only.

It was a train, just a misprint))
