Hello respected teachers,

Is there an adjective/noun in English describing a person who lives an ordinary life? Not because he is poor, but for he doesn't believe in a luxurious life due to religious or moral reasons.

I am looking forward to your answers.

Thank you, FounDit. Some people say that 'would' cannot be used in the first conditional, but I saw here that 'would' is also among the modals that can be used in the first conditional.

Would you please clear it up for me?



I am looking forward to your answers.

Hello respected teachers,

As a result, no one could make a living as a writer in the early seventeenth century by producing best sellers. The first writer formally to arrange for royalties was John Milton, who received five pounds up front for Paradise Lost, and another five pounds and five hundred copies at the end of each of the first three impressions.

What does the underlined mean in the above please?



I am looking forward to your answers.
