A hilt is a knife, sword, or dagger's handle. When you're learning to sword fight for your role in a Shakespeare drama, the first thing you'll learn is to hold onto the hilt.

Shouldn't it be "life's, "sword's" instead?

Thanks.

It seems to be a shortened way of saying:

That's what I thought. But, where I live, "would" is the word for almost all such construction. I think the people do not know the difference between the two words.

I wonder if native speakers also have the same problem.

Do not park your car near the school, as it will/would cause traffic congestion.

Is it "will" or "would"?

Thanks.

Let's sit under that tree. It is cooler/more cooling there.

Should it be "cooler" or "more cooling"?

Thanks.

Thanks, Romany and DragOnspeaker.

Thanks, thar.

It's more complicated than I thought.

I would never have thought that "I like red colour" is incorrect, but "I like red colours" is correct.

English is indeed complicated.
