Subject:RE: Need a little help in wording From:"Margaret Cekis" <Margaret -dot- Cekis -at- comcast -dot- net> To:"'William Sherman'" <bsherman77 -at- embarqmail -dot- com>, <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com> Date:Sat, 24 Dec 2011 21:59:34 -0500
William Sherman asked for a little help rewording a couple of sentences
Diversified in the sentence: "The most diversified adaptation that plants
have are their leaves
which can do amazing things such as capture water, change colors, and act as
the fingerprint of the plant."
I'd suggest: "In plants, the leaves display the most diverse adaptations;
Leaves are used for amazing things, such as capturing water, changing
colors, and acting as the fingerprint of the plant."
Herbivorous in the sentence: "Just like plants, animals have specialized
adaptations to help
them survive the ever-changing challenges of nature. Some examples of
adaptations that animals have are - herbivorous animals like horses or cows
have flat teeth to help them grind up grasses.
I'd suggest: "Some examples of adaptations that animals have are the flat
teeth of herbivorous animals like horses or cows that help them grind up
Diversified in the sentence: "Finally, the most diversified physical
characteristics of many
animals are their feathers"
The diversified physical characteristics of birds are most visible in their
feathers, although their feet show a wide range of adaptations, too.
Merry Christmas, too
