Do you have a question here?


I have several suggestions, but if you don't have a question I do not know which suggestion to give.

this is part a free women makes no sense, but I assume you want comments on the example sentence?


Thick shouldn't describe the swamp; a swamp is "a tract of wet, spongy land, often having a growth of certain types of trees and other vegetation, but unfit for cultivation" ( and thick would only correctly describe the trees and vegetation.  As well, this sentence could be tightened up by eliminating the need for two thats:


Tom walked through a swamp so thick with trees that daylight could not penetrate it.


-that daylight could barely penetrate it is less extreme, and perhaps a more accurate statement.
