The word “render” is really in the dictionary. It means “cause”. But guys whose native language is English seldom use it. They like to use the word “cause”. Piggy doesn't know why? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

@htam9876,
Who the hell is Piggy?

The word "render" also means to provide something as in "the service was rendered"

@CalamityJane,
The guy on the upper left corner who uses a pig as his avatar is Piggy. Yes, he is in hell.

Seems that the word “render” is more of a “provide” than a “cause”…

I figured that.

Please don't do that. Speaking of yourself in the third person is annoying.
Just say "I".

Ah, that's why! I have an add block and don't see any avatars and for that reason I missed it.

@chai2,
I am always trying to use “I” as more as possible. But I am habitual to use my nick name for quite a long time. I use many nicknames in PHF: tramp, semi – tramp, tramp in cosmos, this old pig, piggy, and even BB8!

I saw somebody use the word "bolt" as a verb to describe lightning in a thread. "Bolt" should be a noun, something alike a screw?
Anyone can help? Thanks.

@jespah,
Hmm. I don't see included in that what I would understand about lightning bolt Jes.

To htam/piggy...

Bolt in this sense is a noun, not a verb.

English speakers say the words "lightning bolt" among a few other terms to indicate lightning in the sky.

One might say, "I see lightning" indicating you're seeing a storm where there are more than one bolts.

"I saw a lightning bolt", or "I saw some lightning bolts" is common also.

Some people call them "thunder bolts" although thunder is the sound lightning makes. You would still know what they mean.

Or, you can call it a bolt/bolts of lightning.

Thank you. Piggy got it. "Bolt in this sense is a noun, not a verb".

@izzythepush,
Piggy got it: the word "bolt" also means a kind of lock as the dictionary shows.
