- I have never been disturbed by the apparent anomaly that the death sentence remains in our law as the penalty for treason: I see no parallel or analogy between the punishment of crime within a society and the self-defence of a society against its enemies.
- Where is the natural pause as you say this sentence?
- Your practice partner makes the list (which you do not see in advance) and then gives the short descriptive sentence which provides a clue to the way in which the key word has been used.
- Not all life sentence prisoners follow the same "career path" through prison but most spend three to four years in two initial centres, then progress to training prisons and - possibly - open prisons before a final release date is in sight.
- The unchanging first part of the sentence is always: What country or people do you think of when the conversation is about?
- A sentence in the loser's statement to the effect that "the last time I saw my watch was when I put it in my locker at work" or "I placed my purse in my shopping basket" shows that he had possession or control of the property,
- Jinny was so amazed that she stopped speaking in the middle of a sentence and let him say goodbye and make their apologies all over again.
