How would you answer these questions!

I would think for it to make a sound; you would need to be there to hear it.
Have the tree's leaved?

In a poetic sense, as was written above, I like this phrase.
But it's not really "correct" from a grammatical point of view. "Leaf" can be a noun or verb. But "leaves" is a plural noun, not a verb. "To leaf" means to put forth leaves.
I was checking what I thought and this is the entry for "leaved" in the Free Dictionary:
1. Having or bearing a leaf or leaves.
2. Having a specified number or kind of leaves. Often used in combination: three-leaved; wide-leaved.
So does that mean it should be "have the trees become leaved"? English is awesome.
Have the trees become leaved, or are they just leaving?

Good one. If "his welcome" and "her welcome" and "our welcome" were phrases you'd see on a spelling test, I might be convinced.
Your welcome is lifting.
