Topic: Should I use 'would', 'last morsel/amount' and 'if you had been born'?
Posted: Tuesday, August 4, 2015 11:22:38 AM
I think the "last food" dosen't sound right; it sounds incomplete.

Try it like this:

If you were King Golden Hue, do you think you would share your last bit of/scrap of food with others? What if you had been born during the time of Nichiren Daishonin, do you think you would have shared your last bit of/scrap of food with him?

The wind is so strong. The curtain is flap and blow.

The flag is flap and blow.



The wind is so strong, the curtain is flapping and blowing (around).
The curtain is flapping and blowing (around) in the strong wind.

The flag is flapping in the wind.
The flag is blowing in the wind.
Topic: Why didn't you sleep?

You used "didn't" correctly. Only one small issue with the "have" construction.


"Oh dear. You haven't slept. Why didn't you sleep?"

Is it colloquial?
Topic: The most I read is cinderella.

She has a lot of story books.
I asked her, "Which books you read the most?"
She answered, "I read Cinderella the most."


This way sounds better.

Topic: Please tell me if I use 'in order' properly to make these sentences?

far2go:

They look pretty good. You used "in order" fine. I would make only a few minor changes.

1. Can you write down the name of ten countries you want to go to in order of where you want to go first?

2. Please list the name of the countries you have been to in order of how many times you have been there.

3. Tell me the name of these people in order of who you think is older. (I might say: Tell me the name of these people in order, from oldest to youngest.)
Topic: endpoint

Good morning.

I agree with Drag0nspeaker that "Rationale for efficacy endpoints" is not a sentence, but not that it is completely meaningless or unintelligible — it just needs come context.

It looks to me to be a heading or subheading in a research paper or report. Because neferkitty's other example is from a medical text, lets assume ''Rationale for efficacy endpoints'' is also from a medical text.

Assuming this medical context, I think it has two possible meanings: "The reason [a procedure or treatment] is no longer effective at a certain point [in time or process]"(eg. the reason why you'd stop CPR after X minutes with no patient response) or "The reason [a treatment] stops being effective at a certain point" (eg. the reason why an ointment stops aiding in healing a skin rash after a certain number of applications).

Again, these explanations are assuming context not provided in the original post. Hope they help.
