missing apostroph

in "...of the adjectives meanings.", is a lacking apostroph: "...of the adjectives' meanings"

dot comma

instead of "It;s not healthy...", correct is "It's not...".

also in ";;like honey", one extra ";" is unnecessary


What is an adjective for a tasteless food? Insipid! I think it is the one missing here.

Very useful

I enjoyed this lesson. Very useful and sometimes tasty! Big Grin Thank you.


Sour is one of the basic tastes. It is acid, lemon-like or vinegary, tart, bitter, acerbic. Sour food has a sharp biting taste and, certainly, is not sweet.
