questions on idioms

<p>A daughter was born "to" former slaves.
Is that right? I thought it was born "under"...</p>

<p>My team had already taken a quick liking "to" or "of"??</p>

<p>Think about all the indispensable yet underappreciated roles they play.
Why do I not need a comma after indispensable?
Is "yet" kind of like "but"?</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>"To" is correct. My guess as to why the comma is not needed would be that yet is a coordinating conjunction but I could be wrong. And yet is kind of like but, in a way. Both are coordinating conjunctions and have similar meaning.</p>

<p>You need a comma..it's a conjunction</p>

<p>I thought the sentence needs a comma, but the answer key said I don't...o_o</p>

<p>Oh, I am sorry, you do NOT need a comma. I was thinking of something else.</p>

<p>Anyway, the clause "underappreciated roles they play" is incomplete, so it does not need a conjunction. if it were "A dog jumped," it would need a comma.</p>

<p>Totally unrelated, but I was taking a practice test on one of the English passages out of the Red Book and came upon a tough idiom question. The correct idiom was "modeled on". I had never heard of that idiom before.</p>

<p>Yea that one was stupid. Idioms are stupid.</p>
