Hi

Sorry if I have asked this question before.

Is the use of strewn natural here? Could you please tell me an appropriate synonym/substitute?

The floor outside the mosque was strewn with shoes and slippers.

Thanks,

Tom

Yes, but it would be unusual in everyday speech in the US. It is rather literary.

There were shoes and slippers scattered all over the floor outside the mosque.
