alc24- A womans 9 is equivalent to/is the same as a mans 7. I think some people will be mystified by this, but I just happen to know that "A ladies' size 9 shoe is equivalent to a men's size 7." (Woman's and man's would also be okay. In general they are referred to as Ladies' shoes and Men's shoes, but if you are referring to a specific example you could use the singular posessives.)

- We were sill friends after I started dating/to date her ex boyfriend. okay except for the typo
- She would call me/called me even after we stopped dating. both okay
- The second she stops crying it'll mean that she's fallen asleep. okay
- I burned myself (by) touching you. okay, if you have a weird superpower
- How can you be a chef if/when you don't know how to cook. both okay
- My banging my leg mad more noise than it hurt./made more noise than the pain I felt. Banging my leg sounded worse than it was/felt.
- The cream made/got my hands clammy. okay
- My feelings for you have gotten stronger. fine

Hello Khoff,

I had one question regarding the first sentence, your answer actually, the sentence " they are referred to as Ladies' shoes " What is the question to that answer? How would you phrase the question naturally?

What are these shoes referred to as? ????

Not sure it sound or is natural?

Thank you Khoff
What do you call shoes for women? They are called. . .

That would be the most ordinary way. If you want to use the word "referred," though, you could ask:

How do/would you refer to shoes for women? They are referred to as . . .

(Now it seems awkward to me -- I don't know why I didn't just write "they are usually called 'Ladies' shoes.'")
OK thank you,

and for a person?

What do you refer to him as? Your dad or your step dad?

How would you say that?

THank you Jackie
