The meaning of "Susan" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does "Susan?" He called again sounding less patient.
"Sounding less patient" is a adjective phrase or something? Why is it stand behind an adverb (again)? mean?
A: The placement isn't important. It could have been written, "Sounding less patient, he called again."

"sounding less patient" is a participial phrase, acting as an adjective, modifying "He".

Since there is no object for the verb, "called again" is the only natural arrangement of those two words. So, the phrase "sounding less patient" needs to go either before "he" or after "again". By placing it after "again", we know the context before learning that he sounded less patient.

Synonyms of "Susan" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Susan is in the bank and Susan are in the bank ?

For example
“Susan and her friends are in the bank”
Q: What is the difference between Susan changes her hairstyle everymonth. and Susan changes hairstyle everymonh. ?
A: “Her” means that the hairstyle belongs to Susan. It is her hair.

You can say “Susan changes hairstyles every month.” If you are going to write it this way, use HAIRSTYLES (with an “s”).
In your example, you said HAIRSTYLE (without an “s”).

I hope this makes sense. You can ask more questions if you need to! :)
Q: What is the difference between He took Susan to be my wife. and He took Susan for my wife. and He mistook Susan for my wife. ?
A: The first sentence doesn't make sense because you're talking about a marriage and 'He' is supposed to be "I" most likely.

"I took Susan to by wife"

However that still sounds unnatural because it's supposed to be a wedding vow..
"I take Susan to be my wife"
The second sentence should be
"He took Susan to be his wife"

Tbh all the sentences except for the last one sound weird because they have a mix of second person "He" and first person "My" and they don't sound right together in this particular sentence.
The last sentence is correct though:)
Q: What is the difference between Thank you Susan. and Thank you, Susan. ?
A: "Thank you, Susan" is correct English. It means you are talking to Susan and you are saying "thank you". I always use the comma.

But many people leave the comma out and say "thank you Susan". It isn't correct, but everyone understands the meaning.

Thank you for asking this question, @chr1sn.
