[Coursera again; assignment 2.2]Unit 2. Module 2.
In your journal, continue your list of nouns and adjectives by adding in five to ten verbs and adverbs. Then, write a couple of sentences using your list of nouns, adjective, verbs, and adverbs.

This reminds me of all those vocabulary exercises in language classes. Only there, the vocabulary was not self-chosen. And the best way to remember it was to use all those words in sentences, the more words in one sentence and the more bizarre the result the better. And in French (and German) classes, it was my goal to stuff all the nouns of the same gender into the same sentence, the better to remember it by association.

Let us see the first verbs that come to mind.

Run, fight, lie, beg, spread, tread, bleed, meander, grind, bewitch.

Too much fanfiction right here.

Now, adjectives.

Boldly, eagerly, swimmingly, wisely, good, broadly, lightly, poorly, meaningfully, separately.

Sentences.

1. His nose bled lightly, a couple of droplets falling into his water mug.

2. She ground her teeth, and poorly attempted to withhold the urge to murder the jester who thought it amusing to use the snake figurine to channel some truly atrocious pop music.
