Topic: rouse oneself/ rise to one’s feet
Posted: Sunday, June 26, 2011 1:07:52 PM
He roused himself unwillingly from his thoughts upon the past experiences and rose to his feet.
I think the crux of the above expression is the subject has regained the capacity for sensory perception.
We can understand the expression in two pieces:
1. roused himself unwillingly from his thoughts : the subject comes out of his dreams(or thoughts).
2. rose to his feet: He regains his conscious control here.
Topic: difference between of amusing and of being amusing.

I think 'the quality of amusing' is said in a relative sense i,e.
whether the subject is amusing depends upon the individual.

On the other hand, 'the quality of being amusing' talks about the
charm of the subject exclusively.

The news headlines may or may not be formally correct.
However, the sentence :
Lorry,driver involved in accident with Minister's car traced, is correct.
