Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Words"

The meaning of "Words" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does No, they aren't difficult words. The students just never bothered to learn them. mean?
A: It means the lesson is easy but the students did not study at all.
Q: What does You'r going to skim over words. mean?
A: read quickly
Q: What does You stole the words from my mouth and you really sound like an American. mean?
A: "You stole the words right out of my mouth" means they wholeheartedly agree with what you just said. It doesn't have to mean that they were about to say the same thing, but it can mean that.

In this context, "you really sound like an American" might actually be referring to what you said earlier or your views/opinions. It can imply that you are similar to an American in that regard.

You: Wow, eating hotdogs at a baseball stadium is the best!
Person 1: You stole the words right out of my mouth.
Person 2: Haha, you really sounds like an American!
Q: What does in 500 words mean?
A: If there is no minimum as well, then yes.
Q: What does "first words" in 371 mean?
A: He's referring to the last words a person says before they die, and saying they're as important as the first words a person says (I'm assuming it's first ever, unless there's something else in Game of Thrones that's called "first words").

Also, what I understand of the sentence from context, he's saying that last words are unimportant, as usually the first words someone says are pretty trivial.

Example sentences using "Words"

Q: Please show me example sentences with words fail me.
A: I think the person wanted examples of the phrase "words fail me", not "fail me"

As for that, there's not really a whole lot of examples. You can just say "words fail me" whenever there is an amazing situation that you can't believe. It can be used in positive or negative situations when you can't think of a reaction to something.

"I just got you this 100 meter tall birthday cake, what do you think?"
"Words fail me"

"Words fail me when I think of all the people who died in the terrorist attack"

"I can't say how thankful I am that I met you. Words fail me."
Q: Please show me example sentences with words "borrow" and "lend".
A: Can I borrow your pen
Can you lend me some money
Can I borrow your charger
Can I have a lend of your phone
Q: Please show me example sentences with Everyday phrases.Write as many everyday words as possible..
A: well, yeah, yes, no, what?, dude, please, alright, see you later, call me, okay? , take care etc etc etc
Q: Please show me example sentences with words related with physical description/personality..
A: advanced...

Churchill was a rotund figure with a pugnacious manner.

Trump is a psychopathic octogenerian with fascist tendencies.

She has a statuesque figure and a sharp intellect.

Her delicate appearance belies a ferocious drive to succeed.

She is quite particular about her looks but doesn't seem to pay any attention to the way she treats other people.
Q: Please show me example sentences with "Would" and "could" I'm completely confused using these words..
A: They're the past tense of "will" and "can", respectively.
"He says he will." becomes "He said he would."
"I think he can." becomes "I thought he could."

But they also are used in hypothetical contexts. Consider:

"I will eat."

What if used it in an "if" sentence?

"If I had food, I will eat." ☓

Wrong. "Will" here still means you absolutely will do it, but because it's hypothetical ("If I had food" implies there is no food), we can't use "will". This is where "would" comes in:

"If I had food, I would eat." ◯

It's also used when asking if someone could do something.

"Would you go to the store and get me some milk?"

("Will you go..." sounds quite rude and demanding.)

Similarly, "could" is used as a hypothetical "can". You're saying that you COULD do something, if the conditions were right.

"I can sing."

"I could sing (if I had a microphone/if my throat wasn't sore/if we had some music/but now I'm too old)."

We can also use it in our last "would" example:

"Could you go to the shop and get me some milk?"

Finally, there's a phrase you'll see a lot that uses both.

"I would if I could."

"Ah, shoot, the straps on my shoes broke."
"Just buy some new ones, that pair was getting old."
"I would if I could, but I don't have the money."

Synonyms of "Words" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between In other words, and Namely, and In short, ?
A: In all of them you are trying to summarize something

For "in other words" you want to summarize the point using different words (usually you try to use your words to make sure you understand)

For "namely" you are giving a name to the thing that was discussed

For "in short" you are trying to come up with a very short way to say the point
Q: What is the difference between neither and either and Where should I use which of those words ?
A: yes! Like if somebody says to you "I don't like this" you could reply with "neither do I"
Q: What is the difference between he stumbled on his words. and he stuttered. ?
A: When you stutter, you repeat a sound, like h-hi or th-th-thanks. When you stumble on your words, it means you say the wrong thing. I hope this makes sense.
Q: What is the difference between bad words and slang ?
A: slang is usually shortened words or another word for other words (confusing I know) bad words are just... bad words. Slang- brother= bro
What's up- what are you doing?
Bad word- fuck
Q: What is the difference between Which this words is more common though or although? when I used? and Which this words is more common though or although? when I used? ?
A: This can be confusing, but although and though mean similarly the same thing. You cannot use although at the end of a sentence, it's weird I will show you.

Example that is good: even though I don't like candy I want it today

Example that is good: although I don't like candy, I want it today

Example that isn't good: I want candy today even if I don't like although.

To fix the last sentence you would need to would need to say: I want candy today even if I don't like it, although I'll have some today.

Translations of "Words"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? the words for kids or babies usually. like mama, papa
A: Moma and Papa can be used like names by their children in English but there really isn't anything that goes the other way, that parents can call their children.

Other questions about "Words"

Q: What do the last words, "; or", mean?

... if and only if b evaluates to true; or what?

Thanks in advance.
A: because of "or", the sentence continues. read it like: "... the address specified by e iff b evaluates to true, or an unconditional jump statement..."

it's just like:

- a dog,
- a cat, or
- a mouse

Q: If you see the words 'stirring songs', what kind of songs do you imagine? Is this the expression to refer to specific types of songs, or is this something that makes you in the state of stirring, so everyone can think about different types of songs?
I think of a song that creates some sort of response (usually an emotional one). “That song stirred my heart in a way that can’t be quieted until I take action on this feeling.” Sure, that sentence is written rather poetically, but it’s a rather poetic word in the first place

And, yeah. What stirs one person may not stir someone else, so it depends on the individual. However, that doesn’t mean that anything can be stirring. It’s a closely related word, in these contexts, to the word moving, as in “It was so moving to see his devotion to his daughter’s well-being.” or touched as in “It was touching to see the stray little puppy find joy again.”

^^It’s very close to that kind of image
Q: Please show me how to pronounce words ends with "r", like brother, refer, paper, if are plural, how is the "rs" pronounced?

A: brothers, refers, papers.
(All three use the Z sound.)
Q: He was blunt with his words. Does this sound natural?
A: This is correct.
Alternatively, there is an English idiom that goes like this:
He doesn’t mince words.'t+mince+your+words
