4. Why "Here they is" uses "is".
5. "He came to the fence and pointed his arm." What is the meaning of "pointed his arm" in this sentence? Point the direction with his arm?

7. "You will worry yourself sick over him." In this sentence, the word "over" means "more than".
I rewrite this sentence. Youself sick should be more worried than his.
8. "It just upsets me that much more. " Mother said. "Dont you know it does."
What is the meaning of "that much more", and why use the word "does"?
9. "You get your hands froze onto that gate."(It is a cold day) Why use this word "onto"?
I rewrite it. You get your hands froze if you put them onto( can I use against) that gate.

10."We went to the fire." means what?
I rewrite it. We came near the fire.
11. "I am not  one of those women who can stand things" What is the meaning of the word "stand"?
Can I change it for the word "control"?

13."Mother took my face in her hands and then she held me against her".
I think both the word "in" and the word "against" are very great.  Maybe I gotta find the differences between these prepositions.
14."This thing going to fall to pieces under you all some day."  I can't understand it clearly.
15. "The carriage jolted and crunched on the drive." I like the usage of the part "on the drive".
I rewrite it. The carriage jolted and crunched while driving.

16."We can come back by there." I like this sentence. Does it mean we can pass that place when we come back?

I find two sentences and I think the structures of these sentence are the same as the structures in Chinese.
1. How many times do I have to tell you not to bring him into the house with his overshoes on.
2. Aint you shamed, talking that way.
