AnonymousI am just trying to improve my english and dont have any mentor, Can someone please let me know if what i understand or do is right or wrong?

I have some sentences below and i just wanted to know if they are correct - Take care to capitalize the pronoun "I." All sentences need punctuation at the end, eg., a period.

I was abashed by the email sent by my manager This is correct, but the word is uncommon in everyday speech. "Unabashed" is much more common. Google hits: "abashed" - 653,000 / "unabashed" - 2,090,000

The aboriginal soundtrack was better than the remix Use "original." "aboriginal" is a very special word, meaning "native," as in the native population of a region. I've never heard it used in everyday speech, other than to refer to the native inhabitants of Australia. I think it may also refer to flora, but I'm not sure. How far back one goes, I have no idea, but I've only heard it used in referring to existing populations.

The class was abridged due to lack of time Correct, but very uncommon. I'd use "cut short." "Abridged" is commonly used to describe shortened versions of books. Also, "due to" is ungrammatical. Use "because of." The difference is technical. Check Google, "because of vs. due to." If you don't get it, post back. ( "The shortness of the class was due to the lack of time," is correct.)

I abstained myself from participating in the cultural events You must delete "myself." The verb "to abstain" is intransitive only. (There's no transitive usage.) It does not take an object, even reflexive. You may say "I recused myself," but that has a special meaning. You may say "I withdrew myself from the event," but then you can't use "participating." ("To withdraw" may be either transitive or intransitive.)

I abstained myself from bungee jumping since I am scared of heights Same objection!

I recieved an acrimonious email from my manager. okay!

The client attacked acrimoniously to the lawyer after he lost the case The verb "to attack" does not take the preposition "to." In this case, the adverb should come either before the verb or after the object - I'm not sure why. "The client acrimoniously attacked the lawyer," or "The client attacked the lawyer acrimoniously."

Acids usually have an acrid odor okay!

The washroom had a acrid odor okay!

Beacuse I understand technology very well I can make acute decisions based on my knowhow This is correct, "acute" meaning "sharp" decisions, but it's uncommon. "Accurate decisions" would be common. "I have an acute pain - acute angina" is common. "An acute angle" (less than ninety degrees - geometry) is common. Beacuse Because

Engineers are adept at learning new theories. Okay, but I guess we don't know the same engineers.

Employees should Adhere to the companies policies No cap on "adhere." Possessive "company's."

The office was adorned on christmas eve Capitalize "Christmas."

Childrens seek adulation from parents No "s" on "children"

Affable people are good to be friends with okay

She is aloof okay

india is an agrarian country Capitalize "India."

I have a altruistic nature Use "an" form of article before a vowel. (an apple)

The policy of my company was amended after march Capitalize "March."

I was allured by her beauty okay

Mumbai has ample food to feed the people okay, but "its/her people" might be better.

My debts were annulled with my last salary Use "wiped out!" "Our marriage was annulled by the Church/court." - something done by an official body.

A diamond ring would help me appease my wife okay

I was apprised by my manager regarding the appraisal i recd (I received.)

I had an arduous project last month okay, but we don't usually use "had" with "project." "I had/performed an arduous task" / "I took on an arduous project."
When you get to the "B's," don't put them all in one post, or you'll crash the site! - A.

Avangi ( "The shortness of the class was due to the lack of time," is correct.)
A good rule of thumb is to use "because of" if you can answer the question "why" without a complete sentence.

Because of the lack of time. Emotion: smile>> here we can use both.

X The class was abridged due to lack of time X

Because of lack of time >> therefore we should use ''Because of '' here, not due to.

I feel less thick. Emotion: stick out tongue
