Find the context of each word in the text, and record it. Then, write your own sentence using the word. The first one is done for you. 1. Raise Cain - yell and carry on angrily about something (Comes from the story of Cain and Abel. Cain killed his brother and went to Hell, so Raising Cain is related to raising Hell, a more commonly used phrase).

Reckoned- reasoned 3. Infernal- no good, something evil or bad 4. Stock-Still- not moving at all; as still as cattle listening for a predator.
