  • penitent 的例句:
    Robert sat before them, almost penitent about the past.

    Robert 跟sat 中間的空格不見了, 另外, 後面的almost penitent about the past
    是不是有點文法上的問題, 小弟以為應該是Robert sat before them, feel penitent about the past 是不是比較通順呢?
  • NO,

    Robert sat before them and felt penitent about the past.
