Hi teachers,

Would you correct the following sentences? Thank you very much.

1. When an half-year old baby is being placed in a chair with seatbelt buttoned up, he or she is likely to lean towards one side or the other because they have not reached the stage of sitting.

2. She is sitting askew/ crooked in her chair.

3. Even with the seatbelt on, she is sitting inclined towards the front of her seat.

4. She is not sitting up straight in her chair; she is slouching and reclining.

5. When tired, her head will tilt to one side of the chair, resting on the back of the chair.

6. Her hands are trying to catch the weight on the floor so her bottom moves up shakingly. She is trying to stand up but she keeps falling down.

7. She is always latching on one of her feet, playing around her toes.

Thank you again,

Tinanam

Hi Mister Micawber,

Thank you for your help.

I still have a few questions I'd hope you could answer them. Thanks.

1. Would "she's sitting to one side of the chair" be correct?

2. Would "She is fastened up in her chair", "Her seatbelt is tied up" be correct?

3. What other word to replace "suck" in "She is always sucking on her big toe"?

4. Would you correct this sentence: She's sleeping in her chair with her head on its table.

5. How to use "to catch her weight"? Could you cite an example for me?

Regards,

Tinanam

Hi Mister Micawber,

Could you correct this sentence?

Baby Gia is lying on the bed, playing with her hands holding her feet, rubbing her little toes and swinging from one side to the other. (Would this be called fetal position?)

Thanks again.

Hi Mr. Micawber,

I'm sorry if I have let this thread run a bit long.

Could you help me with the following sentences? (Please help correct them also. Thanks)

1. Do "crouch", "haunch", "sqat" have the same posture?

2. If you're sitting at the table, you fell asleep, where your upper body hovering on the table with your chest down touching the table, what'd this action called?

Thank you very much.

Regards,

Tinanam
1. Do "crouch", "haunch", "squat" have the same posture?-- 'Haunch' is not a position; it is a body part. Crouching and squatting are roughly the same; a squat is more comfortable, as it includes resting the haunches on the heels or thereabouts.

2. If you're sitting at the table, you fell asleep, where your upper body hovering on the table with your chest down touching the table, what'd this action called?-- I can think of no specific vocabulary.
