    My Word: xerus

  • #599048
    Mr. Rao,
    Kindly recheck your sentence formed. It conveys a different meaning than intended for X-rate. X-rated films are pornographic or indecent movies that should not be viewed by the children. Kindly amend it to read as 'Children are not (not) allowed.'

  • #599053
    Thank you Mr.Sun. It is a typing mistake. Sorry for the trouble.

    Members,
    I sincerely thank you all for your best contribution to the alphabet X. We have learned most of the commonly used words beginning with X. Let us shift over to a new thread to enhance our English vocabulary of a different alphabet.

    @ Editor concerned may lock this thread please.
