Today I was asked to change the word shaded to shrouded
the sentence was:
I was pretty sure shrouded meant something deathly, so i checked and its definition on dictionary.com was - A cloth used to wrap a body for burial; a winding sheet!
"Impressive paved and landscaped courtyard, shaded by mature trees and
palms with all day sun"
So i emailed him back.
HiArming the uneducated with a theasarus is a self-destructing human bomb waiting to happen.
A shroud is what you wrap dead bodies in and the term is used for
cloth not trees.
See The Shroud of Turin - what they wrapped Jesus in
when he died.
I'll do all the other changes but I'm leaving shaded as
then again maybe i should have left it and sent it to rove....
