Can you help us to help dd1 with her spelling homework?
She gets her list of words to learn and also has to write each word in a sentence, presumably to show understanding of the meaning and to help remember the spelling. All fairly standard.
Each week there have been one or two words that have been tricky for her to think of a sentence for and we have encouraged her to look up the word in the dictionary, then we've helped with the explanation until she can think of how it would fit into a sentence that someone of her age (8) might use.
The first word in her spelling list has even stumped us this week, can anyone think of a sentence for SUBJECTION? - that makes sense to an 8yo.
Would this work? - 'The RSPCA help animals that are under the SUBJECTION of cruelty by their owners'
Ok, yes. Thank you for clearing that up a bit more in my mind.
Like you Elibean I think that it is much less commonly used than 'subjected', and 'subjection' sounds much more awkward in a sentence, especially when you can't really work out how it fits into the sentence!
