Hello respected teachers,

He was trying on the role for size.

What word could be the closest synonym to the underlined idiomatic expression?

I am looking forward to your answers.

Thank you Romany,

Is 'out' an adverb in the given sentence?

Could it be written as follows?—

Her achievements are chronicled in a new biography which will be out this week.

I am looking forward to your answers.

I think Romany is correct given the fact that 'Gérard Kerouac' was the only brother of 'Jack Kerouac'.

I am looking forward to your answers.

Hello respected teachers,

Her achievements are chronicled in a new biography out this week.

What does out mean in the above please? How the meaning of the sentence would be changed without it?



I am looking forward to your answers.

Hello respected teachers,

At an early age, he was profoundly marked by the death of his elder brother Gérard.

Is "older" also correct in the above? Which one is used most frequently by native speakers please?


I am looking forward to your answers.

Hello respected teachers,

I had to get rid of the car because I couldn't keep up the payments.


Is the underlined part correct? Should it not be "keep up with the payments"?

I am looking forward to your answers.

One more question, could we say "excluding meals" instead of "exclusive of meals" to express the same meaning?

I am looking forward to your answers.

No. The price is 'exclusive of meals' = it does not include meals.


Thank you. But why should one say that? It's clear that the price is not for anything else when they say "for accommodation only".

I am looking forward to your answers.

Hello respected teachers,

The price is for accommodation only, exclusive of meals.

Does it mean that the price is just for accommodation and meals?

I am looking forward to your answers.
