There is no context, consuelo, it's a list of sentences!

I knew what the second phrase meant, was just looking for another way to put it.

thanks.

Is the Hebrew for tube the same in both meanings?

I'm assuming that since Logwood was allowed to take the test home and given ample time to translate, he is expected to use whatever resources he has at his disposal to complete the work, much as any traslator would do IRL.

Haha

Yes, we were in fact encouraged to use every resource in our disposal. Of course, if they had known the people I would be asking are you, they might as well have given me the job already...

Seriously, what's a better resource to have than a forum of English logomaniacs? ...all in all, there are so many things intended to entrap you in this test, it's not even funny. I worked out most of them, and look forward for more. And I take my time. After all, I got time! I just hope others won't be as freakishly pedantic as I am. Most of them looked pretty stupid to tell the truth. Ah yes, I know, look can be deceiving.

When it comes down to it, I guess I just wanna be 100% sure of everything. The results of this test may lead me into (radically) different directions in life. But I have only little doubt I won't get it. As the saying goes: the only thing we can be sure of in this life is that we can't be sure of anything.

Anyway, I think I got everything figured out for now. I got only one more article (and a half) to translate and I'd be finally done with it.
